Wireless Zero Configuration not starting

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Frank Shelledy, Aug 23, 2007.

  1. In previous posting I described a problem with a Dell laptop, not activating
    Wireless Zero Configuration. Jack (MVP-Networking) suggested that Dell
    software and Windows Wireless utility (WZC) were conflicting, and referred
    me to ezlan, and I was able to manually activate WZC through services.msc.

    I want to activate WZC on startup, rather than having to do it manually. I
    need to find out how to disable the Dell wireless software, or to start WZC
    at startup, or something.

    Pleasse help.

  2. Hi
    I am not familiar with all Dell computers, so I can not tell you
    specifically how to disable the Wireless utility on yours.
    Usually the wireless utility are load via the Startup group. Find the
    correct entry disable it, and the dell wireless utility would not start
    running when you switch the computer On.
    This might help in the process.

  3. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. WZC would not start automatically. After
    reading your message found that the wireless card has a program that starts
    up in the sys tray. By running the msconfig and going to the services tab
    you will find a program that the wireless card uses that starts up and
    conflicts with the wzc. by removing the check mark it becomes disabled and
    once system is rebooted the WZC will start automatically. Dennis
