Advent 7108 laptop - is there a registry entry I can modify to turn on wireless at start-up? It is not a mechanical switch that can be left on.

Have you tried looking in msconfig: Start Up?

“Advent 7108 laptop is there a registry entry I can modify to turn on wireless at startup?”

The wireless network card will only be “Enable” once you are within range of the

wireless router

You should check these setting on the wireless card and network connection

Right click on Wireless Icon in the task bar Click Status-General-Properties

Click – Wireless Network Tab – In the “Preferred Network” display box highlight your

Network name and click Properties

Tick “ Connect even if this network is not broadcasting”

Click Connection Tab – Tick “ Connect when this network is in range”

Click OK

At the top of display the type of Wireless Card will be displayed

Click Configure-Click-Advanced Tab

Check the following: -

‘Auto Connection Mode” is Enable

“Power Saving Mode” Set to Cam (Constantly Awake Mode)

Click - Power Management Tab (If Available)

Un Tick “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”

Network Connection Setting

Click-Start- Setting-Network Connection-New Connection Wizard

Select-Connect to the Internet-Next

Select-Set Up My Connection Manually-Next

Select-Connect using a broadband connection that is always on

Next-Finish

Thanks all, I shall check all these when I can restart it (blame Linux).

Now you are telling us its Linux!

If you put the Encryption key in when you get it going It should auto start just the same

OK, been through those. I don't get the necessary options to start automatically. How about if I solder the switch connections together?
