Wifi Auto-Connect to two-wifi APs, problem

Q: Wifi Auto-Connect to two-wifi APs, problem

Hi All,

I have two wifi APs in the home and I have it all set up so that one is the Internet by cell phone tether and the other is the cabled network via the router wifi.

Works just fine - except.

On wifi 1, Internet I have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does.

On wifi 2, Network I also have it set for "Connect automatically" which at boot up it does NOT do. I have to go in and connect manually even though the "Connect automatically" is checked.

It seems win8 sees "Connect automatically"and does it but then stops checking other connections. Probably a "feature."

Is there some way to force both "Connect automatically" to happen?


Preferred Solution: Wifi Auto-Connect to two-wifi APs, problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There is a group policy setting for this, but even if both are connected you will only be using one of those connections at a time.

Hi all.

Have just installed a fresh copy of Win7 Home.

It's a thing of beauty and no doubt, but I have one query that I couldn't find help with from 'Help and Support'.

When I boot up my laptop I would like it to auto connect to my Wifi router and then auto launch Firefox.

I can just about figure out how to auto-run firefox from the help files but I can't find out how to auto-connect to my router as the laptop starts up.

Can anyone give me the steps to set this up?

If you could I'd be really grateful.

Thanks in advance, Ste.

A:Wifi Auto Connect?

just add a shortcut to firefox in the startup folder in your start menu.
It should then start with windows.

During the day, my laptop is connected to the internet via my phone hotspot. When I get home, I often forget to connect to my home wifi and this kills my phone's internet package very early in the month. Is it possible to make my laptop connect to my home's network when possible?

A:How to auto-Connect to a certain WIFI when possible

Probably, but it may not disconnect from one in order to connect to another.

EDIT: I should say "maybe" instead of "probably." I was thinking this was in Networking and the OS unknown. Microsoft has removed a lot of functionality from Windows 10.

Hi all.

Can you help me configure my Win10 to automatically connect to multiple wifi networks?

I have wifi at home so when I get to the office I have to configure the "manage wifi settings" on my laptop, click "forget" my home wifi, and manually enter the office wifi password. I repeat the same process when I get home from the office or use the wifi in my brother's house. I had this on my Windows 7 but can't figure out how to in Win10.

Minor issues, I know, but still a pain. TIA

I bought my mum her first PC with Win 7 and a broadband connection which we have set up as WIFI. The broadband works fine, when we manually connect it. But the problem is when I have tried to set this to 'connect automatically on start up' (bottom right hand corner icon / into wifi and properties / clicked on the connections tab and ticked the box that says 'connect automatically on start up'. But everytime I re-start the computer, the wifi does not automatically connect. I have tried ticking the other 2 boxes as well under 'connect automatically..etc- but nothing seems to work. I have downloaded the latest software adaptor, installed IE9 over the top and the settings all say 'automatically connect' - but the pc just is not doing it - on start up.

I don't know what else to do - I am sure it's a setting somewhere, but spent 3 hrs last night and couldn't find it. I just want to make it easy for my mum to get onto the net as she's never used a pc before! so all she has to do is to click on the E/ ie button and straight into google.

Any thoughts would be very welcome, thank you very much.

Hi all,
I am not sure what the problem is...new HP dv7-7300 windows 8 and an  i7  and the wifi connects most of the time if I let it set for about 10 seconds after shutdown, then restart. The troubleshooting part of the wifi does not come up with anything.
If I select restart and it reboots right away I see a little star or something on my signal icon which I am thinking is limited connectivity, not sure. I have to connect manually even though it is set to auto. If it sits for 5-10 minutes it will eventually connect. Router seems fine, another machine always works fine using it.
I installed an SSD right away and the machine works flawlessly aside from this issue. I didn't notice this problem with the original HD but only used it for a few hours and didn't do any quick restarts.
Any ideas will be appreciated.

A:New dv7..wifi won't auto connect half the time

Did you reinstall Windows 8 on the new ssd or cloned the drives? If you reinstalled, its possible you missed a driver or are using an outdated one. In my experience, most of the connectivity issues in Windows 8 are due to drivers.

Dell 7348 will not auto connect to WIFI on boot !! Have to manually connect .
Using Win 10 home. I have checked the auto connect box on the WIFI 
Even if I I manually  connect WIFI, sometimes while surfing I can a WEB SITE NOT FOUND message. and I look at the WIFI task bar ICON and I can see the YELLOW colored WIFI symbol and I have to manually connect WIFI again.
I have done the following fixes:
Updated  7265 WIFI driver to the latest version.
Changed WIFI advanced power to high performance.
Changed WIFI driver Power to NOT turn off.
Updated all 7348 Dell Drivers and Software .
lI have a Duall band ASUS router RT=AC68u , and I tried both banads with the same results.
My other Dell Laptop model 7352 does not ever have the WIFI issues described above!
I am thinking about changing the the 7265 WIFI card any other suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Dell 7348 will not auto connect to WIFI on boot !!

Try "forgetting", or deleting the stored WiFi profile entirely, and then reconnecting.  I can't give you specific instructions for how to do that since you didn't mention which operating system you're using -- for future reference, that's almost always important information and therefore worth including upfront.  If that doesn't solve it, I would try actually uninstalling the WiFi driver from Programs and Features and then going into Device Manager, finding your WiFi adapter, and selecting Uninstall there as well.  Check the box to also delete the driver if you see that checkbox, although you might not if it's using a built-in Windows driver at that point.  Then restart your system and reinstall the latest WiFi driver.I really doubt this is a hardware issue if WiFi is working after you connect, so I don't think replacing the card will do anything.  If you replace it with a different model, that might fix it, but probably only because the driver was changed, not because the card you have was defective.

My new XPS 13 9360 will not auto-connect to any WiFi access points.
I am fully up-to-date on BIOS and all drivers from Dell; currently I see this on Windows 10 Build 14986 (which is the latest slow ring insider build) - but I _may_ have seen this on the latest Windows 10 stable edition as well.
I have tried recreating access points, reinstalling drivers, all to no avail.
The access points in question auto-connect perfectly with another laptop. Generally, once (manually) connected, WiFi works very well.
I'd be grateful for any suggestions on how to make auto-connect work reliably.

I have a new windows 7 laptop (home premuim x86). I can connect to my wifi as normal and set the connection to Auto connect when network is in range.

The problem is soon as i reboot the laptop it looses the setting so i have to go back into the settings for the wifi connection and re-tick the option to connect to the wifi automatically again. this happens everytime i restart the computer.

Any ideas greatly appreciated?



A:Win7 looses tick to auto-connect to wifi on bootup

Hi David201, and welcome to SF. Please fill out your system specs in more detail (e.g., what model Lenovo).

Do you have a third party firewall? Do you have any third party apps that might interfere with the wireless nic? See if the wireless adapter has management tools / applications and, if so, disable them.

We just got an Asus EEE netbook that has Windows 7 Starter edition on it.

An annoying problem with it is that even after setting our home wifi as the Home wifi connection, and I seem to remember also specifying that it should connect automatically in some dialog box during first-time setup, it defaults to needing to be manually connected every time. And there is no option anywhere to be found to set it for Auto. So I can not reset it to auto. There is no option available to do it anywhere that I can find.

To vent just a little: how could such a really obvious flaw like this go out to market? OK that's a rhetorical question. Of course a NETbook ought to be able to have its wifi set to connect automatically. It looks to me like some overzealous programmer has written in a non-overrideable default setting of 'manual connect' on this. Thanks, guy.

I searched online for a solution to this and could not find anything. There was one set of instructions I did find that supposedly pertained to both Vista and Win 7, but I hit a dead end because a folder it told me to go to (WLANServices) did not exist in this Win7 Starter version I have.

Also if anyone has the name and address of the programmer, that would be good too. I have a bag of something I want to mail to him.

thanks for any help

We have a Dell Lattitude E5540 running Windows 8.1 Professional connected to an Active Directory domain. The laptop has the latest drivers and BIOS, including the driver for its Dell Wireless 1506 802.11b/g/n (2.4Ghz) adapter.
At the login screen, we can connect to our wireless network, which uses WPA2 with AES encryption, to allow loading roaming profiles. However, we have to type in the key for the network every time because clicking "Connect Automatically" doesn't
work before login. Upon logging in to the machine, the wifi connection is broken, and we have to manually reconnect even though the profile for the connection exists and it is not necessary to re-type the key for the connection. Again, "Connect Automatically"
does not work. In addition, the wireless connection cannot be shared; it's indicator for "Network Availability" is always "Me only". Also, the network status on the "View Network Settings" pop-out is always "Limited"
even though its status in the Network Connections window is "Internet Access" and "Domain Network", and the icon in the notification area is the one used for wired networks instead of the stair-step icon for wireless networks.

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

Hi there @Dee85 Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you are having troubles with connecting to your home network; I am happy to help. Have you tried connecting to a different network with this notebook?Does the wifi (available connections) show up on your notebook at all?Have you tried resetting your wireless router? The error you are getting sounds like the router is not passing on a local IP address to your notebook. The problem could be on either side of that. Try working through these.Troubleshooting wireless network and Internet (Windows 8)Also, you can look at the power management for your wireless adapter:Disable the Power Off option for the adapter:1. Open Device Manager. (Win Key+R > type devmgmt.msc > OK)2. Expand the Network adapters.3. Right click on the Ethernet/Wireless Adapter and click Properties.4. Click the Power Management tab.5.

Okay, so my desktop is connected to the network by wifi to the wireless N (plus B and G) router. It connects to the internet fine and dandy. My iPhone can connect to the router, but drops the wifi signal most of the time. It doesn't seem to want to hold the connection because of either distance or interference from the wall or whatever.

What I want is to connect the iPhone's wifi to the computer for a stronger connection. But I don't want to move the router because it's centrally located and my office is kinda further away from it.

1 computer
1 802.11n wireless USB adapter connected to computer
1 802.11g wireless PCI adapter connected to computer
1 802.11n router connected to internet
1 iPhone with 802.11b/g connectivity
Is it possible to do this? I know what people have done it with one wired connection and a wireless connection from the computer. But can it be done with TWO wireless adapters connected to the computer?

Thanks in advance for any replies....

PS...I know it'd be easier to just use the computer to browse the internet since I'd be in the office anyway...but I work as a 3D modeler and alot of times I'm testing renders for scenes and such and can't stop the render without losing the progress. If I browse while it's rendering, it's possible I can crash the computer because of the heavy resources the 3D engine is already using.

A:Possible to connect iPhone's wifi to computer that is connected by wifi to the net?

Doesn't hurt (except maybe your time) to try. Get an ad-hoc wireless network working between computer and iPhone (using dynamic addressing). Then in Network Connections bridge the two wireless connections.

If it doesn't work, show the following for the computer before you bridge and when you have the bridge.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:


[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Hi there,

I have a new problem that has just cropped up today. I am no longer able to connect to public wifi or my phone's wireless hotspot. My laptop either will not connect or connect with limited access. It has connected without issue in the past and as soon as I returned home it connected to my wifi here.

What I did notice is I am connected to an unidentified network with no internet access in addition to my home wireless network:
Acer Aspire S7 392
Windows 8.1 64 bit
Intel Dual Band Wireless 7260 (driver updated)
Disabled my firewall and antivirus

I just connected to my phone's hotspot again and here is what I am coming up with:

And when I run ipconfig/renew

Latitude E6520 running Windows 10. Was working fine and then 2 days ago the wifi dropped and won't go back on.

When I boot up, the wifi icon shows black and white with the little asterisk. I can click on it and see my network, and my neighbors, all showing up fine. However, after I click to try to join the network, it thinks for a bit and then says: Can't connect to this network. Even if I put in the wrong passcode I get the same error so it's never getting far enough to even validate that.

After I click Close to that, the Wifi icon then shows with a red/white x. I can then no longer see any wifi networks available at all. After a minute or so the red/white 'x' goes away and I can then try again but get the exact same results.

The network card that was in the laptop (DW1530) didn't technically have a Windows 10 driver from Dell so I took a card from a different laptop that is supported (DW1504) but it has the exact same results.

I also tried connecting to a different wifi and got the exact same results.

Anyone have any idea what might be causing this or how I can fix it? My other laptops, phones, Fire TV stick, etc can all connect to the router just fine. The laptop was just reimaged a week or so ago and worked fine for a few days before this happened.

I know it's not the card itself as it's working fine in Windows. A little bit of console output: [email protected]:~$ lspci | grep Wireless02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821AE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter   There is another odd thing I noticed that might be relevant: After the internet has dropped out, I can disconnect from the wlan via the icon but I can't reconnect.   I would be very happy if you could help me with this problem. If you need any other information, tell me and I will post it.Thanks! EDIT: After some more searching, I found some posts/articles that describe exactly the same problem as I have:Wireless disconnect issues Ubuntu 16.04 with RTL8821aehttps://medium.com/@elmaxx/rtl8821ae-wifi-drivers-in-ubuntu-16-04-4c1286524afa#.dsczz2t2whttps://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2245164  Unfortunately, in some posts the problem stays unsolved and in some others, where solutions are posted, the solutions don't work for me, so I really count on your help.

Hi there

At home we have 2 routers, our flat is big so in ourder to get better signals I use second wifi router connected directly to 1. So we can use No1 but not able to use second router. Problems is No 2 router shows that it has network from N1 but doesnt send SSID. So all laptops in flat can't detect second Wif router. I disconnected both, waited for 1 min, plugged everythin then connected but same no SSDI is sent by router 2, what could be a problem?

A:Solved: Laptop wifi connect problem

Read other 7 answers

Hey Guys,

My WiFi started acting strangely lately, right after a "technician" messed with it and now I can't connect to ANY secured wireless networks (including my own!), however when I try to connect to unsecured wireless networks, they do work. *I AM able to connect to these same networks via ethernet cable.* I have secured networks at home and at work, both of which I know the passwords for, both of which used to work wirelessly everyday and now they do not.

When I try to connect to a secured network I get this error message every time: "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. Please refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I have tried many times to no avail.

Although I get this error message, I know for a fact that I am definitely within the range of the wireless signal; I used other laptops and smartphones to connect to the networks just to make sure.

Please help if you know what can be causing this, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

A:WiFi Problem Can't connect to secured networks

Does your Wireless adapter use a different utility to monitor wireless networks other then the Windows Utility? There may be another icon in the System Tray in the lower right hand corner that is disabled. Usually right clicking this icon and enabling it should work. Or you may need to find it in the All Programs list to start it. There should be a section where you can edit the saved password for your wireless adapter and once that is removed, you can retype the password for the secured wireless network you are trying to connect to.

recently i was having major computer issues on my desktop, i did a full restore to factory settings and after doing a few windows updates i found that my network adaptor was not finding any signals. it does not show up in the change adaptor settings page or in the device manager page. when i troubleshoot my internet connection it says an ethernet cable is not properly plugged in. I have a desktop computer but it definately has a wireless network card. i used to get windows updates for it and it just stopped working one day. when i look in the BIOS the only option related to booting a network card is B03 D00 Yukon PXE. no matter when i boot it i still dont get wireless signals. when i go into the boot menu and try to boot this device it says " PXE E61: media test failure please check cable" i have opened the tower and the card is securely in its slot. i thought i would workaround by getting a usb wifi card. I installed it and connected to the internet and it alternated between having a connection to the internet and being connected to the network but not the internet. even when it is connected to the internet i cannot reach any web pages. my dropbox desktop files update very slowly (7kb/s). when i am connected with the usb card the network stops working for everyone else in the house. they can no longer reach web pages or continue downloads. please help.

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

How do I prevent wifi to come on every time that I boot up my HP ENVY dv7? I know who to turn it off after the LT is up and running (f12).  I just do not want it to be auto enable when I power up. Thank you S P


Hello SP First tap on the Action Center icon on the taskbar and go to All Settings. Now select Network and Internet. In the left panel, tap on Wi-Fi. Now in the right panel, check out for the option Change Adapter Options. Tap on it. The Change Adapter Options will options will open the Network Connections. You will find the network connection to which your computer or tablet is connected.
