For users of Windows 7 or Windows Vista, the operating system offers the option to set Windows as the default manager for wireless settings. The setting installs with Windows automatically; however, if a user installs software with a new router, the new software will likely set itself as the default manager. In such cases, if the user prefers, he will need to change those settings in the Windows environment.
Click on your "Start" button. Navigate to "Programs" followed by "Accessories." Select the option for "Command Prompt." The command prompt will load on your screen.
Type "netsh wlan show settings" into the command prompt. You will get a warning on your screen that reads, "Auto configuration logic is disabled on interface 'Interface name.'" Interface name refers to your network.
Type into the command prompt the following command:
set autoconfig enabled=yes interface="<Interface name>"
Replace "Interface name" with the name of your network.
