My Sagemcom Wi-Fi hub refuses auto access to my Netgear extender

Dear All,

               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  :-

1)Control Panel

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?

Dear Ferguson,
Many thanks for the info. I've spent several years trying to prevent Microsoft from down loading "support updates" which try to trick me into taking up its offer of Windows 10. Several years ago I stupidly believed my more informed friends and Microsoft,, when they suggested that Windows 10 was the way forward and downloaded it onto my laptop. When it did not run, I tried reverting to Windows 7 and the machine was wrecked. I have only partially got it working again, by replacing the hard drive.
All my machines run Windows 7 and I have set in motion a plan to keep this excellent OS going until I die!
By the way most of my friends are now bemoaning the fact that they moved to Windows 10,
Best wishes,
John

Hi,

      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.

Best wishes,

                        John
