Back to the technician then

I wonder if some drivers are missing because my XP, which I still have, doesn't do this. As soon as I boot up the wireless adapter searches for and finds my router and logs me in to my ISP for internet access.
I don't have to do anything, even though my neighbours also have wireless networks.
I wonder if this is a router setting? This kraun router seems to be Italian as my Google search for it only gives Italian web sites, so I can't help you there, but if you enter the router's setup pages from your browser, you may be able to set the channel #
In fact I've just checked my XP router settings and the channel is set to Auto in its wireless settings.
As to the icon, my XP's "My Network Places" > View Network settings, then right click my wireless settings entry and select Properties, I see 2 options;
1] Show icon in Notification Area when connected, and
2] Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity.
Do you not have those options? If not I again suspect drivers are missing.
