Hi! When my granddaughter fires up her netbook-Windows XP-it goes to a local community network instead of to Plusnet. She then has to view all network connections and select Plusnet, which says it is automatic but isn't. How can we configure things so that it will go straight to Plusnet to establish a connection? Any advice would be appreciated.

Changing the order of preferred networks might help. http://malektips.com/xp-wireless-change-order-preferred-networks.html

Leave Plusnet set as automatic and set the others to manual.
