I changed my router to the new Sagemcom Wi-Fi hub last year and it has certainly improved the Wi-Fi throughout the house. However it only gives an 80% signal upstairs, so I thought I'd use a Netgear AC750 (EX6000) Wi-Fi extender between my PC and the router. Once connected the signal strength was 100%.
My PC is Quad core, has 1.25 TB memory and 16 GB of RAM and runs Windows 7 64bit
The problem is that every time I turn on the computer, it will not automatically connect to the extender. Consequently I have to click on the internet icons at the bottom RH corner of my screen and manually connect to the extender, every time I switch on the PC
Friends have told me to GOTO :-
2)Network sharing centre
3) Manage wireless networks and place my extender at the top of the list of available networks.
4) Click on the APPLY icon
The trouble is, there is no APPLY icon in that last window and the computer then re-arranges the order of the networks when next I switch it on.
Is there another way to ensure that the computer automatically connects to my extender, when I switch it on?
You know that Windows 7 support has ended?
Is there anything of help for your problem via this link:-
Thanks for the info.
Will read through it tomorrow.
I've looked at the web page for about an hour now and it was most informative. Many thanks for that info.
However, I'm now more confused than ever, especially after using a Wi-Fi Analyzer on my phone.
It seems that at 75, my brain has given up on the mysteries of modern electronics. So I'll go back to boat building and accept that I have to change the network connection over each time I turn my computer on.
Hi John being a couple of years younger that you I know that feeling, just glad I have a son who took Electronics with Computing course,s at university so at least I have someone to turn to if I need help.
