My parents were having continuous trouble with Windows Vista. The problem was that Vista refused to connect to the wired network set up for them, and if it did it would only last for a day or two and then quit. Finally yesterday it quit connecting completely no matter what I did, so I took the initiative to install Ubuntu onto their computer.
(Needless to say, they love it since I installed a Mac OSX theme and Docky :].)
The wired network connects just fine but I have to manually connect to it via the launcher bar up top every time it boots up. This wouldn't bug me if it was my computer but I don't want my parent's to have to remember how to connect each time, any help?
