      Hello

      Does the signal come up as very poor/low on the laptop?

      When i first turn the laptop on, it finds my wireless internet (and others), but when i click to connect, it says 'Cannot connect to the profile', so i have to repair the connection, then it lets me connect.

      Never heard of that before, sorry not much help!

      In case someone else has an idea of what the problem might be..... what version of Windows are you using?
