    Intel PROSet Wireless connects automatically to any network [solved]

    respirorox

      Even if the Intel PROSet application is not running (no taskbar ugly icon ), at Windows 7 startup it connects automatically to networks even if the "connect automatically" box is unchecked in Windows' Manage Wireless Networks > Properties.

       

      I had to stop Intel PROSet services to fix the problem. Then I removed Intel PROSet from my computer out of rage against uselessness:

       

      the users have to choose the networks to exclude from automatic connect.

      It is opposite to what is the supposed normal behavior of a Wifi Connection Utility, isn't it?

       

      MY QUESTION IS:

      Will I miss Intel PROSet Wireless WiFi Connection Utility? (Except the big ugly taskbar icon )

      Does it have any useful feature I still don't know about? (Except standing in front of all other programs in the taskbar )

       

      Intel PROSet lists ALL network for automatic connection, WHY??
