1. Go to Control Panel, then Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center.

2. Click Manage Wireless Networks in the upper left portion of the window.

3. If your computer is new, then just click "Add." If not, then click "Add," go through the steps below and then choose the new network as your active network.

4. Select "Manually create a network profile."

5. Complete the form in the next window, including your network SSID, encryption type, encryption key, etc.  Select the option to connect automatically.

6. Save.  It should say "Network Successfully Added."

That should allow the machine to connect automatically each time it boots or is logged into.

Hope this helps!

Make sure that the first time you login to the domain with a particular user, you use a wired connection instead of a wireless connection. You need to create cached credentials so that your user logs into the domain even if the wifi connection is not up yet.

We've had problems when using the Intel ProSet to manage the wireless. Let Windows manage the wireless.

Thank you dcraft. I did join it to the network with the wireless adaptor and was not able to make Intel ProSet work either.

Now I know why it always creates a temporary profile. Lesson learn...never join a computer to the domain with a wireless adaptor.
