    Re: wireless zero configuration

    Hello Jack-

    I know you posted this a while ago, but I had a question.

    I have followed the instructions in your link, but every time I start the
    computer, I have to reperform the actions. Additionally, in miy wireless
    settings, I periodically need to go into the advanced settings and reclick to
    let windows configure my wireless access.

    How do I get rid of the wireless zero configuration altogether, or can I
    simply use it to manage my wireless?

    Thanks-

    Re: wireless zero configuration

    Rich, you should always start a new thread rather than jumping on
    someone else's, particularly an old one. And describe your system
    (including Windows version), your symptoms (including error messages),
    and exactly what you've done so far.

    From your brief description, it sounds as if you still have a
    manufacturer's utility active which is turning off WZC.

    You don't say which of Jack's instructions you followed (he primarily
    describes how to turn WZC on). If you do not want to use WZC, just set
    its startup type to "disabled." If you do want to use WZC, you'll have
    to find the option in your manufacturer's utility to do so. If you
    identify what wifi adapter (and computer mfr) you have, perhaps someone
    here will be able to help with more detail.

    Re: wireless zero configuration

    What's happening here is that your computer is over-riding what you're doing.
    You need to find the Wireless Settings of your computer manufacturer in the
    Control Panel (mine is called Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility). Open that up
    and it should give you an option to check or uncheck a box about letting it
    manage your wirerlss settings. I've found this because I had the same
    problem, I'm not a techy!
    Good Luck,
    Mark

    I am in the same boat. Everytime I log off, or restart, or shutdown and
    restart...I have to manually restart wireless zero configuration. I have
    indicated it is supposed to start automatically, but and when I go in, that
    is still the option shown, but obviously, it doesn't start automatically.
    This all just started happening. Please help.

    Re: wireless zero configuration

    Hi there

    I searched Microsoft website for people who'd had issues with wireless
    connection having to be reconfigured each time the pc was restarted, as I'd
    been trying to sort this issue out since installing a Netgear wireless
    utility onto my pc. The netgear utility would take SO long to find the
    network I wanted to connect to, sometimes days. So I thought I'd try using
    Windows as the default manager which usually worked while the pc was on but I
    would lose the connection each time I turned the pc off and connectivity
    would vary considerably while I was online.
    I found 'retirees' question and hence your suggestion - just wanted to thank
    you for a simple & clear solution. I did what you suggested and it seems
    that Windows is now happily the manger running my wireless application (big
    sigh of relief)
    I tried using the article Microsoft provided but your suggestion proved
    easier to understand and apply - so BIG thank you as this issue has been
    frustrating me for over a month now!!
