No automatic connection when booting Windows
« on: October 11, 2007, 09:14:28 AM »

For the first 2 weeks of owning the DIR-655, I was getting an automatic connection when booting windoes.  Now I am not. I have to go into the Network Connections, click on disable, then enable for the connection to happen. Two days ago I changed the RWIN and some other settings in the registry.  Yesterday, I got the connection automatically. Could changing the RWIN and other settings be the problem?

I am not familiar with RWIN or these other settings, however I would not hesitate to suggest that it is a very strong possibility.  If that was truly the only change then it would have a cause->effect relationship, however with a modern computer it's hard to argue that something is the only change.

D-Link does not suggest or support playing with the registry.

changing the receive window size for the TCP packet would not prevent your PC from connecting automatically to an AP.

Did you change/disable any of your services?

WZC service perhaps?

I actually played with fire twice. The first time I f*cked with the registery the connection went into the toilet.  I could barely connect. For some reason I tried it again. But the people that were giving me the advice on what to change seemed to know what they were doing.  I would really like to improve my connection.

"Did you change/disable any of your services?"

What services?

"WZC service perhaps?"

If you are running XP, there is an "administrative tools" section which has a "services" section that is being referred to.

WZC stands for Wireless Zero Configuration which is the service that windows uses to control the wireless functions on your computer.
