I have a Windows 7 Pro laptop we use for testing and for guest users. I have the test user logins connecting to our local SSID. I want to know if there is a way to set the guest user login to auto connect to a guest SSID WiFi that isnt on our network. Is there a way to set this in Windows, or even a 3rd party program?

Windows 7 will only auto connect to a W-Fi point if the point is active. So if the guest Wi-Fi is active, then set up a profile in the guest account and test it. It should auto connect after that. Do not set up this guest profile in the non-guest account.

First time I have setup separate network profiles per user. Worked like a charm. Thank you
