My wireless internet keeps changing from home to public. PC is about 3 years old and just started having this problem today. So I can't access my wireless network and thus not the internet either. Any suggestions? thanks,

Hi again vandal67

You should find a fix here. Probably in local policy.

I have Win 7 home premium so I don't have access to Local Group Policy Editor, so I can't use Option 1. Because of the wireless issue, I had to hard wire the router connection to my PC to try option 2. All 3 downloads gave me wireless access to my network for a few seconds, then kicked me off. When I try to connect again it also stays on a few seconds then off.

Group Policy Editor was installed and followed instructions from there I tried not configured, private, and public. I stay on network a little longer, but still kicks me off, especially when I try to open up the internet. But, thanks for trying to help!
