The only way to have automatic reconnects is to use encrypted passwords.
When windows prompts the user for the password it is very misleading.
It is not because they don't know the password. They are actually just
warning that they are about to send the password in plaintext (insecure
if you are not on a secure switched network) and want to make sure that
isREALLY what you want ot do.
