Hi mkgupta0491,

Please enable ‘Connect automatically when this network is in range’ feature in the wireless card properties.

  1. Click on Start button.
  2. In the search box type, ‘Manage Wireless Networks’ and then press enter.
  3. Right Click on the network you connect normally and click on Properties.
  4. In the Connection tab give a check on ‘Connect automatically when this network is in range’.
  5. Click OK.

Please let me know if this helps.

Hi mkgupta0491,

I would suggest you to delete the wireless network under ‘Manage wireless networks’ and reconfigure the network by adding it. You can find ‘Manage wireless networks’ under ‘Network and Sharing Center’.

mkgupta0491,

Please continue with

 

If I'm reading this correctly, you are connecting but then loose the connection and it does not reconnect, correct? If yes, then try these tweaks....

 

Start, control panel, device manager. Click on Network and then right click on your network adapter, left click properties, power management. Uncheck the box, allow computer to turn off this device to save power.



Go to the power options, and changed the Wireless Adapter Setting, from Maximum Power Setting to Maximum Performance.

mkgupta0491,

When you reinstalled the operating system, did you install the Dell System Software(if applicable) and the chipset drivers first? If not, the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

Start with the Dell System Software and the chipset drivers and follow the list.

 

If the above is correct, then I would download the drivers for the adapter and save them to your desktop.

 

Make a system restore point.

 

Go to device manager, network adapters, right click on your adapter, left click uninstall. Tell it to remove the software and drivers.

 

Restart your computer.

 

When you login, the new hardware wizard will try to install the adapter, but fail. Install the drivers you saved to your desktop.

 

Now you'll have to manually connect, make sure the box is checked, connect to this network automatically.

 

What happens?

 

Virus program and firewall you're using?
