    I have my laptop set up to my Wifi using my name.
    I have a number of other names in the list for when I am not at home.
    When I switch my laptop on it connects to TP-LINK this is a poor connection. I dont know what this connection is, & I use 'connect to', to select my connection. How can I make this always connect to my name?

    Hi,

    Referring to this, take a look at the preferred networks and make sure yours is there at the top. If not, move it to the top or remove any others you don't recognise.
