    No Internet Connection [BroadBand] in Lock Screen??


    Is there a way to get Internet Connection in the Lock Screen??

    I signed in to my Live Account and associated my OS..but while rebooting it asks for the actual password of Live Acc or last used password..

    I had just installed W8, So, There was No password given..And I cant log In!

    From what I can tell If you have setup your logon to use your Live account, the system will cache the credentials, does not matter if your computer is 25%, 50% or 100% connected to the internet you can log on. It could also be that when you turn on your machine/or reboot the one of the first service that gets run is the internet service hence before you see your desktop you are already connected.

    My Internet is not connected automatically...its a broadband which uses a username and a password...and in my case the password is not cached!!!

    Please note that I have just installed Windows 8 and it was the first restart!

    You said you signed in with your Live account and associated with your OS? If that is the case, the OS has it cached.

    I have this setup and this is what i think happens.

    Reinstall it but have the wireless internet (or if you are using cable) ready so that during setup you can put in your Live account and password which should associate with your actual Live account on the net.

    My Internet requires a username and a password to connect...So untill i install the os fully i cannot set up a internet connection and so i cannot sign in with Live ID from before!

    Then there is your problem. You associate your Live password after you logged onto your internet. W8 will assume your Live password to be your internet access password.

    My setup is my wireless internet is signed in automatically (no password required) so then the only association is the Live password.

    I'd have to doubt that Microsoft would make this very huge security mistake, so I'd say that it isn't true.

    What security mistake, what are you talking about?

    His internet access is password protected, W8 doesn't recognise the access password because he associated his logon with Live AFTER he logs into his password protected network. So when he reboots, he puts in his LIVE password which would have worked if he was already accessing the internet (which he isn't).
