Automating windows tasks

  1. Hi
    Setup ; laptop wreless router.
    Now whenever the router disconnects (i.e when it is unplugged from the electric socket) network between the laptop and router breaks and to re-enable the wireless network between the router and the laptop I have to do this -

    rightclick on the wireless icon in the tray > click on view network connections > click on refresh network list > click on connect > close window.. which is very very slow and cumbersome

    On linux since everything is command line a simple series of commands in a text file would probably be able to automate this process.

    Anything for this on windows? maybe a powershell solution? say a command line utitlity that would search for available connections and if it finds a particular connection auto-connects with it..

    In the wireless setup, define your network and set it to auto-connect.

    Oops! that works, all I had to do was wait 10 seconds before it connects on it own.
    Sorry and thanks
