I have a Dell Latitude E5500 that I got from my school. I didn't use it for awhile because I couldn't figure out how to connect to the internet. I called Dell to get some answers, so they told me to go to Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Services>Windows Zero Configuration>Start then go to Control Panel>Network Connections>Wireless Network Connections>Properties>Set as primary connection.

It gets onto the internet, but I don't know how to make it come on automatically. Can someone help me... I'm thinking it's an easy fix, but I don't know how to do it. I've tried clicking some kind of box that said something about making it an automatic connection.

HELP MEEEEEEEE!

I have tried setting it as my primary option... As far as I know, it's my primary connection. My school doesn't know at all, it's homeschooling... they just give out the computers. I hate calling Dell because half the time it's some foreign dude I can't understand or they put me on hold for long periods of time.
