Windows Vista - Start - Control Panel - [Network and Internet] - Network and Sharing Center - Manage wireless network

Right-click on your wireless connection and select Properties

Click on the Wireless Network tab and then click on the Advanced button (toward the bottom&)

Ensure that Automatically connect to non-preferred networks is checked.

Click on Close, then click on OK
