Do you have the wireless turned on all the time,i know on mine i have a button that turns the wireless off,but having said that it does connect to the net when its turned on,so its more likely you haven't saved connection,i think there is a tick box to connect automatically.

thanks for the replies,but its not offering me the chance to tick a box to connect automatically anymore so im presumming that ive already done this as i can remember putting in the password.

the strange thing is when i turn the laptop on it says its connected to my wireless network then dissconects itself,then i go through the process of connecting it via connect-set up network-wireless-choose network. and itshows it connecting then a few seconds later im on.
