Nothing? No ideas??
heres what I have : Windows XP, Netgear WG311 wireless card, netstumbler, and a dial up connection through my cell phone (bluetooth)
How can I set up the system to automatically use the wi-fi connection if there is a network available?
I can be in an area where there is a fairly good network connection and my carputer will automatically dial the cell connection.
I tried changing the settings in Internet Explorer to use a Dial-Up only when a network is not present.... but still it dials!
What can I do?
Well, are you actually connected to the 'fairly good network connection' ?Originally Posted by kiztope
The ultimate CarPC - Wow!
I think service pack 2 has tweaks to setup something like that, i know you can set the preference to what network it logs on to but but on my girlfriend's computer it tries to dial constantly even when she is already online. I have no idea how to kill it short of uninstalling MSN explorer (her mother would kill me if i did)
Service Pack 2 RC2 for XP does a nice job of this. It lists all of the connections in a box and you can tweak them like mentioned above. I have mine set to connect to any avalable network, but then again I don't have dial up. If you need Screen shots of SP2 and its settings let me know.
oh please do i haven't got to mess with SP2 yet but my buddy just got it
Doh, Sorry this is taking so long. My device drivers for my network adapter don't work like they should. Trying to resolve the problem,
take a look at my other pls post reply if you think you can help.
Have got screen shots, just waiting on getting them up on here.
my ap is down at the moment, and I am going on holiday very soon so won't get the screen shots up for a while.
