My computer always seeks a wired connection, even if I don't have a dial-up or ethernet connection.

When I want to connect to a public wireless network, I often have a cannot display page opinions, with the ability to diagnose connection problems.  When I followed these instructions, he still thinks that it connects to a wired connection.  My computer does not have even a modem.  Is there a way to set the default connection to a wireless connection?


Hi DAWickR,

Thanks for posting. What exact error that appeared leading you to believe that it is looking for a wired connection? There is no way to set a default network connection, but disabling the wired network adapter is fairly easy.

To do this:

1. click on the Start button.
2 click on icon from your desktop and select Explorer.
3. in the window on the left side, right-click my network places , and then select Properties.
4. here, you should see your wireless and wired network adapters.
5. right-click the wired adapter and select disable.
6. to activate the card again, click on the same card and select enable.

I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions.
