I have a Toshiba satellite L455D-S5976 with windows7 home. My issue is with the wireless auto connection in the wireless properties. In the properties I select the top box to auto connect to my wireless system in my home. When I boot it connects ok, but after about 60 seconds something removes the check in the box and it disconnects. I have to manually connect and it stays connected until I reboot, then it goes through what I explained above again.

I did as you suggested, I connect ok. It's in the wireless properties where the boxes are to select to auto connect. The check is in the box, but when I reboot my laptop, something removes the check and then I have to manually connect every time I boot my laptop....it won't auto connect.
Tech Support Specialist: Engineer John C., Computer Science Engineer replied 6 years ago
OK, but after removing the networks and connect to it again, do you still get the same issue?

I did as you suggested...which I've already done at lease 3 times before I contacted you. Remember, my issue is when I reboot the laptop, it connects for about 60 seconds, then some how the checks are removed and then it drops connection. So then I have to manually connect and then it connects ok and stays connected until I have to reboot and then it does the same thing all the time.
Tech Support Specialist: Engineer John C., Computer Science Engineer replied 6 years ago
OK. Do you have Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit?. Please click Start, then right click "Computer" and select Properties to find out the version.

Thank you.

It was one of first things I did. And it booted and did a auto install and connected just fine after I pointed it to the wireless and placed the checks on the auto connect boxes in the wireless propertiers. Then I rebooted, it connected and then it dropped connection to my wireless once again. I checked the wireless propertiers and something removed the checks from the auto connect......I'm stumped!
Tech Support Specialist: Engineer John C., Computer Science Engineer replied 6 years ago
Yes, this is weird. Have you tried disabling the antivirus/firewall and also checking if the issue occurs also with a different user account on that computer? Also malware checking (probably do not cause that, but we can try it).

I just booted into safe mode with networking and the checks were on the boxes and it connected automatically and stayed connected. But if I boot to normal, it drops the checks in the wireless properties. hmmmmm
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I uninstalled Norton and the netzero that came with Toshiba....after trying to shut off Norton's firelwall in safe mode.....rebooting now
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
no change with another account.......I gave the account admin rights and it did the same thing.....removed the checks from wireless properties.....stumped again, but is safe mode with networking it works just fine and the checks are in the boxes. I checked Device Manager in safe mode and no ghosting noticed.
Tech Support Specialist: Engineer John C., Computer Science Engineer replied 6 years ago
This is weird. Have you tried updating Windows? Also please check what applications are loaded on the startup (msconfig, etc), and see if there is a router application or third party network application there.

Customer reply replied 6 years ago

yes, did the updates....dats MS first answer to everything.....lol

I shut off everything in services except windows stuff in msconfig and I had to go into regedit and remove the Belkin router stuff the customer had installed, it would auto uninstall in thru control Panel. I just rebooted and it worked and the checks were in the boxes. Rebooting now..........

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I thinking it was the Belkin thrid party sw. Everytime it booted and connected auto, it would drop the connection and then a Belkin warning would pop up. I tried to uninstall the Belkin software through control panel, but it wouldn't, so I had to clean it out thru regedit and it seems to be working just fine after 2 reboots and it's doing the same thing in another accounts with admin rights.....issue is resolved.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
