Been there, done that. I used the same connection selection for all the computers in our house. It is only the DELL, computer which is giving me the problem.

Hi Dave,
I've never set mine to connect automatically, if I'm thinking of the same setting you are.
The first thing to do is to look for available networks and find the one you want to connect to, and then enter on connect, and then enter the SSID and password for your WIFI.

Hello everyone:
If my problem is inappropriate for this list, please let me know where I can go to get help to resolve it.
We have a DELL PC computer. It is running the latest version of Windows 10. the latest version of JAWS is also installed.
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 networks available. However, I have checked the setting to have the computer connect to the router automatically, when 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.
Dave Durber. .
