Recently, I had to move the computer from one roon to
another room. In the original location, the connection to the
network and the internet, was through an ethernet connection,
and I had very few problems. In the new location, I connected
the USB Wifi dongle and installed the software and selected my
ISP's router. I chose to have the computer connect
automatically to other devices on the network.
My problem is, each time I turn on the computer, and try to
access the internet, retrieve my email or, connect to another
computer on the network, I get the message that there are no

the system is in range, but still the system does not connect
the the router each time I start the computer.
Any and all suggestions will be very much appreciated.
