    I changed wireless USB adapters and wanted the XP Wireless Zero Configuration
    utility run the new (Linksys/Cisco) adapter. The tab that contains the box
    to check wasn't under the network options, so I found KB871122 and followed
    instructions to enable the utility. Under:
    %SystemRoot%\System32\services.msc /s. There is no Wireless Zero
    Configuration listing. It's just not on the list. Where is it and what can
    I do to restore this? Many thanks.

    use regedit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WZCSVC

    Add a DWORD entry named "Start" and set the value to "2"

    Thanks to you both! I'll give this a try. Actually, when I reloaded the
    software for the old USB adapter (D-Link), the WZC popped back onto the
    lists. I do want to use the other (Linksys/Cisco) adapter, however, as the
    D-Link ones seem to cause computers I've used them with to have startup and
    shutdown problems. I'll post back to the group if problems continue.

    I don't have the Wireless Zero Config either. I am ignorant on the REGEDIT.
    The link below says if you are ignorant of regedit, you should be very
    careful. Exactly how should the lines read in regedit to get wireless zero
    config back on the list?

    Here is link to article with instructions on how to install missing wireless
    zero config service.

    http://www.practicallynetworked.com/qa/qa20040311.shtml


    This is what finally worked for us. Scroll down to the 17 steps. We got
    Wireless Zero Config back and the Dlink adapter was able to be reloaded from
    there and works great.

    Use Windows regedit, drill down.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WZCSVC

    Add a DWORD entry named "Start" and value "2".
