I have seen a similar thread from this forum but seems like the issue wasn't resolved so I am posting my version of it and hopefully someone can help!

My desktop won't automatically connect to my wireless internet.

I have to go through VIEW WIRELESS NETWORK>CHANGE ADVANCE SETTINGS>WIRELESS NETWORKS (TAB)>(select) USE WINDOWS TO CONFIGURE MY WIRELESS NEWTORK SETTINGS (and then select the network to connect to the internet EVERY TIME I start/reboot.

What do I need to change that so I don't have to do it everytime?

I have a Trendnet-228PI wireless card. The thing is I pulled this card from another XP machine and that machine doesn't have this problem. Is it due to hardware conflict?

Also, only on this machine do I get an additional icon in the system tray next to the Wireless Network Connection that is called "Wireless Configuration Utility HW.11".

Thanks in advance.

Try changing the slot the card is in, maybe that will sort it out. It could be a resource conflict with the PCI slots.
