How to get WINDOWS to manage wireless - Microsoft 871122

After days of trying to get Windows Zero config to manage wireless , I finally tracked down the following instructions :-

To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
4. In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.

Voila

May i suggest allowing your router or firewall to manage your wireless network. It will work much better than your MS computer. You will have less lag time and other MS related issues. Also most wireless routers have client control and web based interfaces that are much simpler to work with. I would be glad to discuss this further in more detail if you like.

Good luck

Re: How to get WINDOWS to manage wireless - Microsoft 871122

It's only for managing your local wifi card. It's useful if you use the card at mutliple wifi hotspots otherwise it's limited. It's useful because it can remember your encryption settings (but not TCP/IP) and automatically select the correct ones depending on the hotspot detected (assuming you've already configured your card for the given hotspot).

Most drivers come with profile ability anyway so make Wireless Zero Configuration a bit of a duplication. However the good thing about it is it lets us support peons talk to you you nooby proles about user interface controls. For example, in W2K it's a wifi free for all and how you configure one card is completely different from another - it's down to the card manufacturer.

Also "Wireless Zero Configuration" is a bit of a misnomer. You still have to configure your card once per wifi hotspot.

Re: How to get WINDOWS to manage wireless - Microsoft 871122

Having played with the inbuilt wifi vs external usb version I got my laptop in to a position where it stated if I wanted to use Windows to manage my wifi, I needed to use "Wireless Zero Configuration" . As ever with Windows, no more info than that & could I find a menu to the such item ...no chance !!!

This the instructions I posted above for anyone else who manages to screw their machine
