In order to configure the connection back to Automatic, edit the eduroam profile, go to the Connection tab and check Connect when this network is in range: Figure 14: Setting Automatic connection [1] = If the Wireless Network Connection icon is not present, this may be due to the wireless network manager of your vendor's card taking over from Windows' built-in one (Wireless Zero Configuration).

Please refer to the documentation of your vendor's card in order to turn it off as this may interfere with the procedure here documented.

Try a different laptop to see whether it has the same problem.
