Auto connect to wifi AP

Postby Wiz Kid on Tue Jan 15, 2013 9:09 pm

Hello everyone, I've had linux Mint for about 4 months now and I'm loving the GUI.
I've been having a problem with auto connecting to my wifi network. Every time I wake up the laptop I have to go to the networks list and manually click on the network to connect. I am wondering if there is a way to have it auto connect since my password is already saved in the settings like it happens on Windows.

Connect automatically is already checked in the network settings, weird.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you click on edit connections, under wireless security do you see your password in there?
