Wireless to startup automatically

Hi all

I have an Edimax USB wireless system that connects to my D-Link router. When I start the PC, I have to call up the Edimax utility and enter the security key for my router to make it connect.

Anyone know of a way I can get it to start automatically at start up - I've looked through every tab on utility and to honest most of the options make no sense at all to me !

Any help very much appreciated

You don't say which version of Windows you're using. I have an Edimax 802.11n USB WiFi adapter which I use in a Laptop running Windows 7 and connecting to a D-Link Cable/DSL router.

I can't remember whether I originally installed the Edimax software but, if I did, I uninstalled it again. I plugged the adapter in and let Windows install the drivers itself and it works fine that way.

In the main I have found that it's far better to let Windows handle the wireless adapter.

If you uninstall the manufacturer's software, and restart your machine you'll find that Windows will pick up the adapter and configure it automatically.

The advice you have been given is very good but if you want to stick with the Edimax utility program then after you have made your connection I think that you need to click the "Add to Profile" button to save the settings.
