Laptop Awakes: Wrong Wireless Connection

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by (PeteCresswell), Feb 25, 2009.

  1. When my laptop goes to sleep, it's hooked into my home WiFi
    network: SSID="Hui_Nalu". WPA, N.

    But when it wakes up, somehow it's grabbing an unprotected
    SSID="linksys" network. Probably one of the neighbors'.

    Then I have to do a My Computer | Manage | Services and
    Applications | Services | Wireless Zero Configuration.Start in
    order to be able to re-connect to Hui_Nalu.

    What am I doing wrong?

  2. Hi
    Look at the preferred Wireless list and clean up what ever is Not relevant.

    Make sure that WZC is on Automatic Mode.
