Good morning - I could do with some help please. I run a computer with Windows 7 Home Premium and I connect to the internet via Virgin Media Broadband( cable ). Until yesterday I was automatically connected to the internet when my computer was started. Now when I start my computer it doesn't automatically connect to the internet. I get a yellow triangle with a black question mark inside it on top of the internet icon on my toolbar, and I am not connected to the internet. I have to double click on this triangle and when the "Windows network Diagnostic" screen appears I run the troubleshooter programme( which finds no fault ) then wait a few seconds and my computer then connects to the internet. Can anyone tellme how to correct this fault please - Thank you - Ian
When you first connect hover your mouse pointer over the connected icon if it says "local connection only" then delete your existing and create a new connection and when it asks you to select a network type choose a home network not a public one
Tosh - thank you for that. When I first start my computer and do as you suggest I get the message "Identifying - No network access" When I am connected to the internet and do as you suggest I get the message "Network 3- Internet Access"
But not being computer literate I don't know what to do now.
All you need do is right click the icon then choose connect. I have the same problem after some foolish messing around by me. I know where the Problem is on my Comp its the WiFi Software that came with the Laptop. You can change the settings in Networking Connections to let windows manage you WiFi and set it to Auto Connect
