I recall that my PCLinuxOS laptop would use any [previously established or new open Wi-Fi signal. Now, it doesn't do this.
For instance, I have things set up to use the office Wi-fi. if I take the laptp home, I then have to hit the connect button to connect to my home WiFi signal and vice-versa. i thought this happened automatically? it recall this happening this way, and now it doesn't. Do I have an incorrect setting?
