Windows 7: Automatically connect to wireless network

I was a little perplexed to why the network wasn't reconnecting after a reboot.

I've set it to automatically connect even if SSID isn't even detected.

To fix it, you'll need to have administrator access.

  • Open up Windows Explorer
  • Paste in "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\"
  • Right click the folder "Profiles"
  • Properties
  • Security
  • Click "Edit"
  • Select "Everyone"
  • Under "Allow", click tick "Full control"
  • Click OK to save

Most people recommend deleting the "Interfaces" folder under "Profiles". Try my method first, since you won't lose any data.

Secondly if you delete the folder, you'll have to re-enter all the wireless password and settings back in.

Now get back to what you're doing before you lose any more time aging!
