Hi, I have a laptop with a wireless dongle. When it is started, it comes up with a message saying that it is connected to BT WiFi (which is what I usually connect with). 99% of the time when i open Firefox it connects first to the WiFi and automatically enters my details and I can surf from then on. However, all yesterday and today, the process is exactly the same apart from when i open Firefox it tries to connect to Google instead of the WiFi spot.

Please can i ask why this is and also what i can do to change this back? I have tried going to my history and double clicking on (three days ago) the the route it used to connect by (WiFi).

You're welcome Buel :)

It does sound like the hotspot is sometimes initially a bit slow to respond so just give it more time if it occurs again.
