    Do you have Windows XP or Vista?
    Do you use a program (linksys, netgear etc.) or the windows wireless connection?

    You must set wireless 2 to connect automatically each time you log on. But I must know which version of windows you are using.

    You need to set the wireless 2 network to be the default/preferred connection.

    You'll have to google for instructions because I'm using Vista and unfortunately it's set out differently and I can't find the screen I need ;)
