Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I login using Win7's Guest account, the WiFi symbol (5 bars) in the system tray is gone and I have no way to control the WiFi connectivity. For already defined connections, the computer connects, but I can't connect to new ones.

How come and is there a way to change this, assuming I also have access to a privileged user?

Adjust the priviliages of this account using the user control interface and policy panel.

The windows Guest account is super restricted and I doubt you get much control over it in W7 Home editions.

Probably easier just to create a new user without a password, or a weak password that you don't mind sharing with people who use your computer.

(Assuming this is home use... would be silly to use Guest accounts in any business environment)
