win8. Can't automatically connect to Wifi? Solved

This problem is easily solved this way: Obtaining dynamic IP address in ipv4 protocol. When you see deactivated icon in the tray click on it and in left side of desktop you will see your wifi connection. Select "connect automatically" and click "connect"
Then follow this procedure:
  1. Click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. Administrator permission required If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. Will appear a window like the window below:

  2. Click Properties. Will appear below window: Select the highlighted item in the image

    Click Property, Will open a new window,
    Get IP automatically: click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
    To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers provided by your Provider (for example. Telecom, ecc...).
    Done. Now your pc should connect to internet, but, however, rarely doesn't connect.
To be sure at 100% execute following steps:
  1. acquire as router d-link DSL 2750B  (this is the one I tested, not good for fiber) or d-link similar. You can acquire for 20 euro it at this page:
  2. Alternatively, if you don't want to buy that modem you have to try approximately these steps: go in your router by typing in the browser address bar: (this is the one I tested)
  3. Log in into router
  4. On the right side menu click on "wireless setup">">wireless connection setup wizard>In the SSID field type the wifi connection name to your liking, idem for "Pre shared key" (min 8 chars)
  5. At this point in win8 pc click on network icon at bottom on the right in your pc (near the clock icon). Search for your wifi connection name, insert the "Pre shared key" anc click "Automatically connect".
  6. Reboot
Done! Now your pc 'll connect to wifi unerringly
Done! At startup wait a few seconds, sometimes ten or more.  May happen that the connection icon in the tray become brown colored. Wait until it become white. Now you are securely connected at Internet.
