This question already has an answer here:
I've got 16.10 installed on a HP laptop for just a couple days now. Yesterday, I had to do some re-configuring to my house Wifi system, and oddly now, when the laptop boots it does not auto-connect the wifi. The box is checked to do that, and indeed if I click the drop box, it connects.
So why not the auto-connect? What did I break?
