      problem with wireless adapter (have to click repair everytime)

      When I turn my PC on I have to manually reset the wireless adapter (by clicking on repair) to access my internet connection, after I do this my internet stays until I shut-down the PC, I have to repeat this process everytime I power-up the computer.

      It never used to be like this, I use to turn on my PC and the internet would start immediately.

      Does anyone know how I can resolve this issue?

      Thank you in advance,
      Pete

      Go to the adapter manufacturers site and download and install the latest driver. Do this even if Windows say you have the latest driver, it may not be and in addition may be corrupt.

      You could also try is going to the Device Manager and open the Properties of your Network card go to the Power Management tab and untick 'Allow the PC to turn off this device'. While you are in the Device Manager check that all you devices are working properly, ie, no marks against any of the items.
