    Internet connection not automatic since update from Win7


    When I startup my computer I may as well turn off, then on, my router. That seems to reset things as to my computer. I then have to click on the airplane icon (which just appeared recently, I think after the last update). That allows me to click "connect" to my router.

    Otherwise, it's a hassle -- IP address conflicts, mainly.

    This problem may have been exaserbated by my switch a few months ago, from DirecTV to DISH network.

    It would be nice if things were automatic like the Windows 7 days.

    Hi, WiFi connection should be automatic, provided you have both the tiles in the Action Centre that can turn WiFi off in the correct state. 'Airplane' should be the dull colour of the background of the Action Centre flyout and Available (with the WiFi icon) should be bright (on) for wifi to connect automatically (assuming in range of the router to which a connection had been established).

    Sorry, but I've never heard of the Windows 10 Action Center (or Centre, UK) you talk of.
