If it was the windows login - which is how you get into "your" user account. - then presumably you know what that is?

If the wifi login (to access the router) you simply enter the SSID and the access key (aka incorrect;y referred to as the password) for the router. Providing you didn't change it from the default it was delivered with, it will be on a sticker on the base of the router...

Incidentally it's generally wiser to change the access key from the default/delivered one to something else; and make suitable note elsewhere what you changing it to. If it's your home/router no harm to stick a note on the base of the router; and also email it to yourself...

Are you saying you have to login to the computer each time you boot up (and didn't prior to installling wifi dtivers), or are you having to login to wifi each time (as in provide the access point's SSID - its name - and the access key - it's password)?

If you you're asking about Windows login password & you never had to enter it before, you probably installed or updated something else along with the wireless drivers. .NET Framework?

You can use TweakUI to change the settings: http://filehippo.com/download_tweakui/

If/when you install tweakUI be careful to use the manual/custom option. Do NOT use the likely proffered default "automatic" option. Using the manual/custom route, carefully watch for, and uncheck "any" prechecked boxes - other than the the actual utility itself. That way you avoid installing all manner of stuff you neither need nor want. and some of it s true PIA to eradicate. Some it will change system settings, browser default settings - amongst other things.

Never use an automatic install option when there is manual/custom available.
