    Question XP and network connection

    I have an old XP SP3 computer attached to my TV for watching videos in the lounge. When I boot it up it doesn't connect to my network until I click the My Network Places icon.

    Is there a way to set the computer to do this automatically?

    Thanks

    Default Re: XP and network connection

    It "should" do it automatically -- One thing you can try, may or may not work (nothing to lose), in the control Panel / Internet Options / Connections Tab / Lan settings Button, put a tick in " Automatically Detect Settings"
