Solved Windows wireless networking connection

Wireless network connection problem?
Every time I start my computer (a Samsung X80 laptop, running windows XP) It tells me I have a wireless connection, but I cannot connect to the internet. I need to open Network Connections, select Wireless Network- Properties, select the Wireless Network. The Use windows to configure my wireless network settings box is not ticked. If I tick this box and continue the connection is established and the internet connection is OK until the next start up. I have the properties for this connection set to Connect automatically to network when in range.

I have been told that the problem lies with some other piece of software controlling the network connection, which I understand. But I do not know what other piece of software it is or how to find it.

Has anyone else ever had this problem? if so can you help me please.

Thank you

✔ Best Answer
Look for and uninstall "Samsung Connection Manager" or some similar name. It should be listed in "Add-Remove Programs" in Control Panel.

Thank you for that. It certainly solved the main problem. The computer connects to the router first time now. I have had the problem for over a year and no one else knew the answer.

There is still one small problem as the computer still loses the connection a couple of times a day and I have to go through the old routine again. Would you have any idea as to what the cause of this maybe? Sorry to ask more questions, I fully understand if you think you have helped enough.

Thanks again
