Solved: Windows: WiFi connect immediately after boot and before logon

In order to have your windows computer connect to your favorite WiFi access point immediately after booting, (without you having to first login to your computer,) follow these simple steps:

1.  First of all, make sure that this computer has connected before to the WiFi spot of interest.  (A so-called wireless profile is created as a result of this manual process.)

2. Run cmd.exe and issue the following command:
netsh wlan show profile
3. In the list of wireless profiles that are displayed, locate the one you want, and copy its name to the clipboard.

4. Run regedit.exe and navigate to this key:
5. Add a string value to this registry key.  Name it anything you like, and give it the following value:
%comspec% /c netsh wlan connect name="<profile name>"
Voila, next time you restart, your computer will immediately connect to this WiFi spot if it is in range.
