Q: How to reconnect to wifi network automatically?

I was found only one automated solution [advertizing removed by mod]. May be some one knew a free solution? Because $30 is a cool price for me.

Preferred Solution: How to reconnect to wifi network automatically?

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to reconnect to wifi network automatically?

It is a lot of articles about how to automatically connect to ad hoc networks at Windows 7/Vista (since Windows Vista you can't do this), it uses a windows profiler to perform this operation, but I'm afraid this solution is not suitable for you, cause actually you will have to run the task every fixed period of time.

p.s. at the link you provided price is $15.

Hi For the past week reconnect network to home automatically Cannot or so I have been experiencing a problem with the connection to my home network I connect wirelessly - it has worked without fault since Cannot reconnect automatically to home network I set it up in January Cannot reconnect automatically to home network no problem with signal Cannot reconnect automatically to home network strength but now frequently loses the connection I have checked the configuration for the connection and it is set to autoconnect It will autoconnect after boot up and after wake up but not after it has lost the connection When I re-connect manually it connects straight away and is then fine until it drops the connection again Is there likely to be something in one of the system logs that will tell me what is happening The router is a BT Hub- and my network adaptor is a TP-Link TP WN ND Mbps Wireless N adaptor My PC is a Dell Inspiron OS is Win Ultimate -bit and browser is FireFox I have just downloaded and re-installed the adaptor driver as well TIA

A:Cannot reconnect automatically to home network

You can try: Check power saving feature of adapter in Device Management and disable it.
Reset the router. Unplug power, wait 10 seconds, re-plug.
Factory Reset the router.

My company has 3 network drives. When I browse to a folder that has shortcuts to network drives, Windows XP automatically creates the mapping. This is unwanted behavior because whenever I go back to that folder, it recreates the drive mappings all over again and I wind up using all the drive letters Windows assigns and 15 mapped drives all mapped to the same place.

My guess to why it does this is might be a group policy (we have AD and use Group Policy) setting somewhere on our 2008 R2 server. If it is a GP setting, I don't know what it would be. I inherited this network about a month ago, so I'm still figuring out what they have done.
 

A:Solved: Network Drives Reconnect Automatically

It's not pretty, but I think I got it fixed.
I just changed where the shortcuts were pointing and that fixed it. Don't know why I didn't think of that before...

A:Cannot auto-reconnect to WiFi network with hidden SSID

Same problem here.

Microsoft's support says this is not a technical issue and refuses to assist.

No comment...

By not best workaround is to delete all profile, do a 1st connection to hidden network then disable automatic connection to the network; hidden network will be listed and it will be possible to manually click on connect button.

Hi,
This is not a complaint, my wifi is working fine, my question is HOW
I work for a small company in Jordan, a while back I moved to another country, bought a new laptop from there, and I kept in contact with my company as I provided some long distance consultancy. I had teamviewer installed on the office PCs and on
the new laptop and I connected with them a few times.

Now that I have returned to Jordan, I resumed my job at the same company, and when I first walked in, with my new laptop which I got from a different country, it connected automatically with the office's wifi network. and I want to understand how?

did my pc take the wifi credentials when I connected with them through teamviewer? was the wifi password saved to my onedrive in some way? is this the wi-fi sense thing?

many thanks

A:D-Link wifi stick not automatically connecting to network

I'm guessing the D-Link device came with a wireless connection manager software? It's possible that it's not set to automatically connect which you should be able to change. If at all possible there should be an option to allow windows to control the wireless stick, that way you can make sure it's set to automatically connect.

Try disabling IPv6 support in network and sharing. its often the cause of random disconnects

A:Problem : automatically reconnect mapped drives at login

I have had many issues like this with NAS devices. Here are a few options:

1) Write a Command Script to remap them, add to desktop or in startup. (i.e.):


Code:
@echo off
net use q: \\nas\share1 /u:[email protected] pa$$word
net use s: \\nas\share1 /u:[email protected] pa$$word

2) Make sure that your NAS is part of the same workgroup. Sometimes they are different or not set the same Windows will not remember the credentials.
3) Try using [email protected] format and see if that will make it remember the credentials.
(i.e. [email protected] <tab> pa$$word)

I hope that helps. -WS

Hi all

I have a few computers that connect via rasdial to a bridged modem. They are dropping off randomly and frequently enough that its a pain to have to reset them manually everytime.

Does anyone know how I could write a script or something that would check for internet connectivity and if there is none then it would re dial the pppoe connection?

Thanks

Wolfsta

A:Check Internet connectivity automatically via script and reconnect

If anyone is curious. This is how I solved the issue.

Friend of mine wrote a basic Powershell script:

$site = "Kelly-PC"
$wait = 60
$nl = [Environment]::NewLine

While ($TRUE)
{
if(!(Test-Connection -computer $site -count 1 -quiet))
{
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Red -NoNewline "Connection Down...$nl"
rasdial attdsl [email protected] password
}
else
{
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green -NoNewline "Connection Up...$nl"
Start-Sleep -Seconds $wait
}
}

$site is the name of the computer
$wait is the time in seconds before next test
and the "rasdial attdsl [email protected] password" line dials my pppoe connection called attdsl with the specified user and password when no connection is available.

Hello,
My Cisco Wireless router (WRT160N) doesn't automatically reconnect after a power outage. This is a huge issue because my router is connected to my VOIP. If a power outage occurs then I will not have phone connection. The only way to fix this is to mannually power cycle the router after the power outage, but someone needs to be at home to do this. Is there any way to enable some type of auto-connect after a power outage?

Thank you very much!

So my computer won't reconnect to any wifi network after it resumes a suspend. This happens with all networks, secured and unsecured. I have to manually reconnect, when this is done, it doesn't always reconnect the first time. Some times I have to attempt to reconnect multiple times before I get it to work. I believe this problem after I installed the Sprint broadband card manager. I removed the software but I am still getting the problem. I also ran an System File Checker on the system and it didn't do anything either.

Anybody know what can cause this and how to fix it? Thanks.

A:Wifi won't reconnect after resuming suspend

This is part of your Screen Saver settings. You need to go into your Advanced power settings and stop your computer from putting your devices into sleep.

since i see you are using windows 7

Right Click on your desktop and select Personalization

Bottom right click on Screen Saver

Change Power Settings >>> Change Plan Settings

then Change Advanced Power Settings

Hey guys/gals!

So I'll click the wifi symbol at the bottom right hand corner of the screen to reconnect... but even though it will say that there are connections when I hover over the icon, the list of possible connections will be blank.

I uploaded a screenshot to imgur so you can see for yourself: http://i.imgur.com/qAC5YX1.jpg

On Windows 8.1 pro, my computer would instantly connect to the wifi network from sleep.

However, when I upgraded to windows 10 pro, the computer takes about 1 minute to reconnect to the network (which is very annoying).

I have turned off the "allow the computer to turn of this device to save power" option for my network adapter, but this does not change anything.

Windows 10 Version of the network driver is not working completely; 1: wait for new driver to be published, 2: try installing Win8 or 8.1 version of driver, 3: don't use sleep/hibernate, it has always been buggy

Hey all Hope I can get some help with a problem that has been bugging me since I WiFi can't out hangs computer drops on and reconnect, shutdown/restart installed W This problem appears to be random and happens a couple of time a month It is really annoying What happens is the WiFi appears to stop working It can't find any available networks and won't reconnect no matter what I do I have even tried closing restarting explorer but that does nothing If I try to shut-down or restart my computer it just hangs on the shut-down restart screen I have to hold down the power button to get my computer to shut-down The weird thing is after a restart it works fine for a few weeks WiFi drops out and can't reconnect, computer hangs on shutdown/restart It just seems very strange I use a WiFi dongle I have a couple of them so I tried each one - they all eventually give me the same result I have a HP if that helps I notice that my father in law's rig also does this occasionally He also has a HP albeit a different model

A:WiFi drops out and can't reconnect, computer hangs on shutdown/restart

I'm having the same issues. I don't use a wifi dongle though. My computer is toshiba satellite P75. The problem has happened a couple of times since upgrading to Windows 10 a month ago.

Alienware X-51
Win 7 Home Premium SP1
Thompson TG585 v8 Modem /WPA2-PSK

Scope of Problem:
This is a Desktop LOADING based problem.
NOT a connection dropping, fading while in use problem.
Other Devices work fine.
Same problem with previous Modem.

Problem:
Login.
Wireless icon shows spinning busy symbol.
If it connects fine, then it will Remain fine until the next Restart

If connect fails then yellow exclamation mark shows over TaskBar Icon.
Viewing connection it shows as Limited Access, but signal strength is 5 Bars
A Manual Disconnect, then reConnect will always establish a working connection (sometimes needs two attempts).

Signal Strength is ALWAYS Excellent, No other devices have issues with WiFi.

This is a persistent and long term problem which has "survived" improved Modem placement , ISP directed settings changes, and a new Modem.

[ Other threads all seem to be about No Connection OR Dropping/Fading/Poor Connection. This isn't ].

A:WiFi Limited Access, Signal Strength Excellent, works if I reconnect

Modem was the problem.

Recently the Thomson V8 was replaced with a telco provided Huawei HG630B.
The issue disappeared instantly, there is now just a little lag and then connection.

So problem solved.

Just got my new computer yesterday. I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit.

I have my dialup connection set to reconnect after connection loss, and it does it just fine - but Windows Live Messenger Will not attempt to re-sign in after my internet connection has been reconnected! It just keeps doing that countdown over and over as if I'm not connected to the internet.

This is important for me for Windows Messenger to reconnect because msn wakes me up at certain times with nudges from my business partner. How can I fix this? What's the problem? Thanks

I use a NAS drive for my scheduled back-ups and usually it works great, however, if my PC is restarted for any reason it will not reconnect the drives meaning that the back-up fails.
If I enter into Computer and double click the drives they become available but I'm not always home between a restart and the scheduled back-up so doing this automatically would be great

I'm sure I found a work round for this in the past but need to fix it again as I have recently re-installed my OS.

I get this error when I turn on my HTPC running KODI. Never had this problem before until I upgraded my main desktop PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 today. The hard drive that the HTPC gathers it's data from is stored on the main desktop PC. When I turn the HTPC on, it get the message:



There's a red X on the drive and it says disconnected. If I click on the drive and enter my credentials, it connects without issue. I've tried adding the credentials to Windows credential manager but the problem seems to be that it won't automatically reconnect after a restart, no matter what I do.

The HTPC is still running Windows 7.

A:'can't reconnect all network drives'

Suggest that you try the following: -

1. Shutdown
2. Physically disconnect all Network drives
3. Restart
4. Monitor Task Manager and WAIT until all Disk activity has stopped - 0%
5. Now physically reconnect only ONE of the Network drives
6. Check if you can "see" the drive in File Explorer
7. Check if you can "see" the drive in Disk Management (see note)

Let us know the result.

NOTE - Path to get to Disk Management

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

Be patient, Disk Management can take up to 30 seconds to populate the window.

A:Could not reconnect all network drives

This issue drove me crazy for ages and I eventually managed to resolve it.
In my case the issue was related to me having configured a duplicate mapping of users homedrives. For each users Active Directory account  I had configured the profile to connect the homedrive to a drive letter and then had also configured
the same drive mapping within group policy preferences. To solve it I removed the group policy preference setting and the message stopped displaying. You could also remove the AD Profile setting but remember that you'll have to take additional steps to configure
folder permissions for the users homedrive. AD profile settings do it automatically for you but can also be setup easily within group policy preferences.
Hope it works for you too.

A few days ago my pc and my work laptop we're idle for a day or so and when I went to connect to the internet I had no network connection. I checked my modem and router and reset everything. Checked to make sure everything was connected. I have a 3rd PC that was connected, but the 2nd PC and laptop had no network connections. I found out today through work that my laptop motherboard died. I still can't figure out what's wrong with my home PC. I have a wireless router, but with my home PC's they are connected hard wire. I placed a wireless connector in my 2nd PC and I can not connect that way either!

What do I need to do? Is my PC MB fried?? Need help!

Have you tried assigning a specific address to the printer in the router LAN DHCP settings? You should be able to see the address in the printer settings then assign that same address in the DHCP table.

Hi
 
We have recently installed windows 7 at work. We use 3 mapped drives (P,Z andT). Sometimes when turning the pc on in the morning the computer will not reconnect to the drives automaticley, Which is a pain. My question is, is there a way to
stop this, can you make them auto reconnect on start up.
 
Thanks       

A:Auto Reconnect Mapped Network Drive

Hello chrispch,
According to the research, the mapped drive lost issue may be caused by the several possible reasons:

 
Possible reason1. The problematic client doesn't reconnect to the target share at logon.

 
Please follow the steps to re-configure the mapped driver on the client and then check if the issue will re-occur.

 
Steps:
 
a. Open "My Computer"
 
b. Click on "Tools" and then select "Map Network Driver"
 
c. input the \\ipaddressofserver\sharename to give the path of the share
 
d. Check "Reconnect at logon"
 
e. Drive gets mapped
 
f. Double click on the drive to check.
 
Possible Reason 2. Antivirus software or Windows Firewall may block the SMB protocol on clients.

 
Please check if there is any Antivirus software and the Windows Firewall is enabled on the problematic client. If so, please disable them to check if the issue can be resolved.

 
Possible Reason3. Fast Logon Optimization is enabled on the clients. 
 
The fast logon feature may affect the display and drive letter assignment of a mapped network drive. As a result, the drive may have been mapped; however, the user on client cannot see it in Windows Explorer. He may recognize it as a failed network drive mapping.
This is the reason why we usually suggest you to disable fast logon on the clients via a GPO, and please check if the mapped network drive will be occur under this circumstance.

 
Please also configure the following group policy setting to disable Fast Logon Optimization to see if the issue still exists on the problematic clients.

 
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon\Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon

 
When this policy is enabled, a Windows XP client behaves in the same manner as a Windows 2000 client at both system startup and at user logon.
 
Please note: As this is a computer configuration, please run "Gpupdate /force" and then reboot the problematic clients to make it take into effect.
 
For more information about Fast Logon Optimization feature, please check the following KB article.

 
305293 Description of the Windows XP Professional Fast Logon Optimization feature
 
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=305293

 
831998 Mapped network drive shows no drive letter or will not allow you to create new long-named files or folders
 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/831998

 
297684 Mapped Drive Connection to Network Share May Be Lost
 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297684

 
If the issue still exists on the problematic clients, please also try adding the following registry subkey on the problematic client to check it works.

 
Steps:
 
a. Click Start, click Run, type REGEDIT, and then click OK.
b. Locate and click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache
c. Click Edit, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
d. Type SilentForcedAutoReconnect , and then press ENTER to name the value.
e. Double-click SilentForcedAutoReconnect .
f. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.
 
Please feel free to let me know if you have any concen.
 
Hope the information can be helpful for you.Thanks and Regards

I have recently subscribed to a local cable ISP and have a Linksys wireless router broadcasting throughout my house. About every half hour, my wireless internet icon in the task bar flashes that it is connected to my home connnection at full signal, and then just after, disconnects.

I am running a toshiba laptop with windows XP pro SP3
In Wireless Network Connection Properties, I have my home internet connect configured at the top of the list in wireless networks, the box that says "use windows to automatically configure..." is checked. Under my connection's properties, it is set to connect even if it's not broadcasting, and to connect when it is in range.

Even when it disconnects, you can see that it still shows up in my wireless networks list at full signal, but it does not automatically connect.

Any suggestions?

I have four machines all connected via a home network and accessing the internet through a D-Link router and a cabled network.

I recently had to reinstall windows xp on one machine and since then cannot get it to reconnect to the internet. It recognises the network, and picks up its IP address from the router, but I cannot get it to see the internet or access the routers software through its IP address. The other machines continue to function normally.

I have reinstalled drivers, and tried the common fix given several times on your forums to reset the TCP/IP settings.

I have searched your forums and tried several other fixes but still cant connect.

PINGing the machines own IP address is successful but pinging the default gateway gives nothing.

Can you help with any other suggestions ?

John,

I'm curious what the equivelents are for XP. I have a similar problem on my XP desktop with a minor difference. If I reboot I connect just fine. Matter of fact as long as I reboot within about a half hour of when I last shut down I connect ok. I lose connectivity when I shut down or hibranate. And if I standby for a very long time (hours+). I don't know if your suggestions will work on my XP machine but it seems worth a try. Even if I need to reapply each time, it'd be easier than rebooting.
Thanks

I was finally successful so I am posting this reply to tell anyone who may be attempting to answer my question they can stop spending time and effort. In case anyone has the same problem I'll now describe the solution. The PC has Mcafee Security Suite. I turned off the personal firewall, reinstalled the printer and it worked. When I turned the firewall back on it would not print. I then went into Mcafee Security Center to the Firewal features and under services I clicked restore defaults on the assumption that the default settings included allowing wifi access to a printer, a common need. It worked, problem solved. Thank you to anybody who read about my problem and gave any thought to a solution.

I have a wireless LAN sharing internet through a Mac Book Pro, i have no problems connecting to this with Ubuntu, an android phone, and other Apple products. The only system that i'm having problems with is the windows partition....The network is listed in available connections, but seems to have the wrong WEP key because it fails to connect. However I cannot delete the connection and start again as the network is not listed in 'Manage Wireless Networks'.

I'm stuck!! I cannot scan for updates because even when the notebook is plugged directly into the router it will not connect to the internet. I can just about get onto my neighbours WiFi network, but it is very poor strength and cuts out, so can't really use that. I know the hardware in the computer is fine because the Ubuntu partition works.

Please help! any tips or things to try would be great!
Thanks in advance!


You should be able to set up the connection manually by following the tutorial below.

Updating the wireless drivers for the Windows 7 machine or updating the routers firmware is also an option.

SwampyYankee. You might want to check the power settings on your wireless network adapter. On most there is a setting to turn the power off to save energy when the OS determins that it is not being used, like in hibernate.

A:Offline Folders - on reconnect to network, mapped drive isn't available

Hi,

I am experiencing the same problem and found an old post Problem reconnecting offline files when mapped as a drive that complains about it, too. I can usually correct the problem by navigating to the equivalent UNC path in Explorer, upon which Vista will realize that it is actually connected. I am only doing this once a day, so it is bearable. Alternatively, I found that when I use the "Work offline" button before disconnecting and the "Work online" butten after reconnecting, things are quite smooth. However in order to get that button I have to open an Explorer window and go to the mapped drive location. I think MS should give the Sync Center tray icon a "Work Offline" option.

Cheers

Hi, I'm having issues with my computer not reconnecting to the Internet after coming out of sleep mode.

The original issue was with randomly getting disconnected from the network. I have slightly fixed that issue, but instead made it so when I use the computer it will work fine, but when I go into sleep mode and later open back up my computer, it will not reconnect to the network.

Things I have tried:

Disabled IPv6 connectivity
Disabled the IP helper Service
Disabled Power Management on my Network Adapter
Flushed my DNS
Went to Dell Livechat
Deleted my Network profile and connected again.
Installed updated Drivers for my Network Card

None of these methods have worked. I don't know what else I can do, I've been having this problem since September, and it's really annoying me.

If you need any more information about my problem please tell me, so I can hopefully fix this issue. Thanks in advance!

You might want to disable the Power Mode setting of your Wi-Fi adapter in Device Manager see if that helps, here's an image.

Hello,

I have a HP 6530b Laptop, and on-board Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet adapter.
When I remove my laptop from the docking station, I obviously lose Network connectivity, however, when I replace the laptop back (or even just plug in a cable directly), I cannot reconnect to the network until I reboot.
I've had this problem for about 2 years now, and finally decided to try and fix it.
I've googled it and searched on here, but without luck.

When I open Network and Sharing Center (Win7), and click change adapter settings the adapter is missing from the list (after i have removed laptop from docking station).

Can anyone please assist?

Thanks,
 

A:Unable to reconnect to Network after removing and returning to Docking Station

Some kind of lack of communication among PC, docking station and router I suppose. Let's see if we can find any hints in the following. Show an ipconfig /all for when you are docked with connection, un-docked, and then re-docked before a reboot. After the last one try

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

to see if that will get you going w/o a reboot.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[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.

When I boot into windows, WiFi signal will spin as if it is looking for a site; however it will not connect. It shows a list of Wifi routers [My building supplies free Wifi]. There are three possible connections that I can use and a listing of over a dozen secured routers from ATT and Comcast. I check 'Connect automatically'' on the best signal router, but upon rebbot/start-up, I have to select the router and check again.

I have looked at all threads and found no possible fix.

A:No connection to Wifi automatically

Funkyecat, it's not that simple. You have to know what protocal, WEP, WPA, WPA2, they are using. You also need the password if any. Get the particulars from the apt manager and get back to us if you need nore help. Give us more details if you can.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

A:Can't Automatically Connect To Home WiFi

Another Problem Found that the Trouble Shooter detects is, "A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken."
The above problem just means you don't have the Ethernet cable plugged in. If you do have the Ethernet plugged in, then you have a problem though!
 
For the above problem and the wireless issue I would do a System Restore to before Skype was installed, and see if that fixes it.

Hi

I'm new to 7 (all my desktops are XP Home).

With XP, the OS just connects automatically to my home wireless network.

However with this netbook, I have to do it manually everytime I reboot - it's a real pain.

Not sure if this OS, hardware or both.

Can anyone advise ?

I've looked at services.msc WiFi service and it's set to automatic already ....

thanks

PS Also, is there a way to get 7 to boot straight to desktop, without having to click on user icon or enter password ?

The reason these 2 are important to me is that this netbook is basically a music server, so when I come in from work etc., I'd like to just power up the netbook then walk off and play stuff via my network (Squeezebox) players

Hey, I was trying to setup an adhoc connection, but I'm faced with a dilemma.
I have internet via an ethernet cable, so I want to spread this wifi using my laptop's wifi connection.
However, whenever I connect the ethernet cable to my laptop and it's connected to the internet, the wifi light on my keyboard automatically turns red and the wifi router no longer works, hence I cannot create the adhoc connection.
After I remove the ethernet cable, the wifi light turns back on, and I'm able to create an adhoc network, but I won't have any internet to spread since, well, the ethernet cable is not plugged in...

I have an HP running on Windows 7.
Both ethernet and wifi adapters are fine.

How do I prevent my ethernet connection from shutting down my wifi router??

Thanks everyone!
 

A:Wifi router turning off automatically

Hmm; IMO, Windows is attempting to keep you out of hot water.

Your PC WiFi is not intended to act like an open hotspot. I you what 'guest' connects via wifi, you should manage that in the router setup (several have the option for guest vs lan users).

You were to create this kind of network:

router = = PC - - wif - - guests
The routing table needs special entries and in effect, you would be creating a dual-home environment (the guests could just as easily be a secondary ISP).

Yeah.... In your Netowrk and Sharing you'll find a list of recent wi-fi connections. Forget the one that you'ld liketo connect to, then reconnect, enter the password and check the box that says "Connect Automatically". I'm sure I'm getting alot of syntax wrong but, that's the general idea.

I have a preferred WiFi Connection, but Windows 10 seems to require that I manually connect to it. How can I make this automatic?

In case it matters, I use an ethernet connection too, and run both, because they are different subnets each with devices (network shares) that I need access to (yes, I have a bridge.) Anyway, the network works just fine except that I have to manually connect to the WiFi everytime I restart WIndows. Ideas?

Hi, I have recently upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8 on my lenovo z470. Recently I have noticed that when I switch on my laptop with AC power (with battery removed), wifi does not automatically start up. I have to manually switch on the wifi through the hot key fn + F5. However, this does not happen if I run on battery without AC power. The wifi will have automatically started and connected. I have untick the network adapter properties of "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. I have also ensured the WLAN AutoConfig is set to automatic. These do not solve the problem. What could have gone wrong?

A:Wifi does not automatically start up when running on AC

Welcome to the forum deddy.

Do you have the latest drivers from the manufacturer for your WiFi adaptor ? The machine was running Windows 7 before so will probably need compatible drivers to run it on Windows 8.

I take my Windows 8 laptop to several boutiques that I'm building websites for and it's a bit of a pain to have to find the appropriate hot spot from the list shown at each store and enter the password for it. I'd like to just open the lid and have the laptop automatically connect to the right hotspot for this store.

Any way to do that?

Thanks

A:Connecting automatically to WiFi hot spots

That should be the default behavior as long as you're saving the password for the hotspot. I forget the exact wording, but there should be a setting on each connection like, "Connect automatically if in range".

I have checked the 'automatically connect' in the wireless networks properties box but it seems to uncheck itself after it shuts down.
This is the 2nd router that it won't connect to whereas all the other wireless computers etc we have have no problem connecting to the router
If someone would be kind enough to suggest a fix I would be much appreciative.

I read bunch of articles on how to remove a Wifi profile.. However I have problem with networks which aren't in profiles (I only have 1 profile and its my home network)..

I have currently 7 networks when I click on the Wifi icon in the task bar. they are from people living around me I guess. They all have "Connect Automatically" checkbox ticked. If I untick it - it goes back once I move my mouse away.

I cant right-click on it and there is no other options. And as I already said - these aren't in the Wifi profile which you can manipulate through netsh.

Windows 8.1 Pro with all latest updates..

I am pretty sure I saw other people complains about the same issue without much of the results..

Any ideas how to uncheck Connect Automatically for ever and ever?

I have windows 8. I set my computer to connect to my network automatically, but I have to log in every time. That is fine, I can live with that. But let's say my network is called AARON. Well now when I connect, and hover my mouse over the connection it says AARON 1,2,3,4,5,6,7........etc. Like every day I connect it's adding another number. I'm up to 50 right now. And forgetting the network does not make this go away. If it matters, my network is "hidden"

The same kind of thing has happened to me since I upgraded to Win 8. Our WiFi too is hidden. I have no trouble connecting each time. But if I check "Connect automatically", Windows says, "Cannot connect to this network"?even though it's just connected to it.

Windows is not adding numbers after our network name, though. If it were, I wouldn't try to fix it. It'd be too exciting seeing how high the numbers would go. Of course we live in the suburbs; where you live, more interesting forms of entertainment may be available.

2. Probably not related but internet runs extremly slow on this computer. All others connected to the same network run normal.

 Ah yes!  There's a new setting deep in the Power Options applet of the Control Panel that can cause this.  Once in the Power Options applet, click Change Plan Settings -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> Wireless Adapter Settings -> Power Saving Mode.  Change the settings there to "Maximum Performance".  
 
 If you want my opinion, somebody at MS was really stupid to make this the new default in 10, but that's what they did.  I can't believe it saved enough power to amount to anything significant, and it causes folks to go crazy trying to figure it out, me included.  And it's burried so deep in the weeds, it takes a lot of digging to find it.

Whenever a device is connected to my hotspot the wifi is turning off automatically thereby stopping the hotspot.

To turn the Windows 10 hotspot on, in first step I have turned on the Wireless Network Connection as shown in the below image.

After that I did following steps in Command Prompt(Admin) for hotspot
1. netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyWiFi key=mypassword
2. netsh wlan start hostednetwork

In netsh wlan show hostednetwork command, it shows the hotspot had started successfully as shown in the below image.

But whenever a device is connected to this hotspot the wifi is turning off automatically thereby stopping the hotspot.

I have unchecked the Power management option i.e, Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
All driver are updated to the latest versions.

That is normal, and happens when you tick it once, Windows remember to connect to it but hides the checkbox. You can undo that by entering network center (at the bottom of the popup) => manage wireless networks => right click on the network => remove.

This will make the option reappear, and no longer auto-connect to that network again.

Hi!

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop, with Windows7 home x64 .

As soon as I turn my computer on and the system finds available connections, the system connects itself automatically to the first WiFi network it finds.

Usually this would be my home network, which is fine. But occasionally, this would be my neighbor's unprotected network, which is not as fine. Potentially, this could be a malicious network, monitoring my internet traffic, which is not fine at all !!


A possible solution might be to check upon system start that the correct network is used. However, if the connection is accidently broken, for whatever reason, the system again connects itself to the next available network, which is again problematic.


How can I stop this automatic WiFi connections?


Thanks

Workaround
One of the basic script workarounds is that , if we have a batch script that will attempt to access \\server\share that
should be mapped to z: then the expected behavior can be achieved with net use.  At the top of the batch script we can add the line: net use z:\\server\share
In the situation where we currently have a failed access, the script will work precisely the same.  If the user was in a functional situation then the added line will give the following error message: “System error 85 has occurred. The
local device is already in use.” However, the batch script will continue as before providing the expected functionality.
If this error message is not acceptable (although it will be hard to notice it because if we just click on a script it will flash the cmd window by quickly) then the output can be suppressed.  Using “net
use z: \\server\share 2> nul” will suppress any errors this command would
produce.

I am not in a domain environment. I have a server box running Datacenter 2008 R2. I have 3 shares that I am mapping to my machine that do not require credentials when mapping. On boot I always receive "Could not reconnect all network drives" notification/bubble.

2. Attempted to create a logon script to remove and remap the drives (in vbs, failed)
3. Set a static IP address on wireless interface
4. Create DWORD "RestoreDiskChecked" in HKEY _CURRENT_USER > Network
5. Input server credentials in Windows Credential Manager of "servername\user" and password
6. Verified on server side that Everyone, Admins, and Users have full control of all shares
7. Disabled on server all Password protected sharing in advanced sharing settings

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Open to workarounds, just want the pop up gone.

A:"Could not reconnect all network drives" pop up on boot Windows 7U x64

Hi and Welcome to SevenForums.

Good Luck with this. If you ever fin d a solution, please post it here. This has been a problem with Windows 7 since it was released.

The only workaround I could find was to use a utility called "mapdrive".
A local policy log on script is run at log on to map each of the drives. Problem is, I have 13 shares and it's not that quick. You can use the computer while it's mapping drives, and it doesn't impact on the computers performance.

I ended up removing it and putting up with the pop up as the drives were available sooner. Even though some brain dead applications (notably Adobe products), will fail when the map drive is "disconnected".

Hello, I have created 2 permanent network mappings to local drives for my phone, but I always get that "Could not reconnect all network drives" alert at logon. It's certain the phone is only occasionally connected so that the network resources are not always accessible. Is there a way how to tell Windows to remember those mappings so that I can open the associated driver whenever I connect my phone, but when not connected those drives will still exist but be inaccessible, same way as empty CD-ROM drive behaves.
?

A:How to dismiss "Could not reconnect all network drives" alert?

If you right click on My Computer and select Disconnect Network drives, you can disconnect the current mapped drives. This will stop Windows from attempting to map the drive each time the computer starts, which results in the error message.

The easier method is to just use Windows Explorer when you plug in your phone or create a desktop shortcut to the phone's drive letter. Though the drive letter may change depending on the devices you connect/disconnect.

Anyone successfully fixed the Could not reconnect all network drives error at boot? I get it most of the time with a wired Ethernet connection. I've done a lot of searching and tried different things but nothing seems to work. This started a few months ago, was not there initially with Windows 8, 8.1 or 8.1.1.

With XP, you could do this to fix it:

Control Panel
Folder Options
View
Uncheck "Automatically search for network folders and printers"

This is no longer an option in Windows 8 (I think it disappeared with Vista).
