Ever since I've installed Vista, I've been having numerous problems with my wireless internet connection, and connection in general.
Here are the problems; I only have two:
1) Every time I open Firefox, I have to re-configure my internet connection settings. I have to click "Tools" > "Options" > "Advanced" > "Network" > "Settings," then click "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network." You would think after doing this once, it would keep this option, but it does not. It has a certain proxy IP set into it, and it re-configures back to it every time, and I can not get internet without re-configuring it again. Can anyone help me get Firefox to permanently auto-detect my proxy settings?
2) As of now, I spend about half of my time trying to re-connect to my wireless internet connection. When I first boot up my computer, I usually have to do a number of things to get it working. First off, it automatically detects my network. It shows that it's connecting to my router, but the "Earth" icon does not light up, which signifies the router can't connect to the internet.
To fix this, I usually have to disconnect from my router, connect to another, re-connect to my router, then attempt to repair it. After I disconnect, re-connect, and repair, it usually works. Sometimes, while in the middle of browsing, I'll get a page that says the website cannot be found. I have to go through this process - again - even though it still shows that I'm connected to the internet.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
