Altho' I have marked several access points to "Auto connect", Ubuntu still doesn't connect automatically so many times (sometimes it does).

Is there any setting change that I need to do.

This is particularly a problem because, any windows machine auto connects whenever the wifi is available; One can easily assume a connected PC all the time, when in range. Its a huge distraction, one that can easily be done away with, to have to look if the PC is connected each time you log on.

You might try using an alternate wifi manager. I've heard good things about wicd. But that's more of a suggestion than an answer, I've never used anything other than the default in Ubuntu.

Network Manager has always performed very poorly for me in Ubuntu. I finally switched to wicd on my eeepc and my laptop and it performs beautifully. – prestomation Sep 1 '09 at 18:10
