    I installed a wireless PCI card in my desktop running XP Home SP1. When I
    open the Wireless Network Connection Properties dialog, there is no tab for
    "Wireless Networks". Also, when I right-click the Wireless Network
    Connection and select "View Available Wireless Networks", it opens up that
    dialog, but the only active button is Cancel and everything else is faded
    out. How do I activate this feature? Thanks

  2. You need to start the Wireless Zero Configuration service (WZC)
    Go to administrator tools -> Services, it's at the bottom

    Set it to 'automatic' and it will work each time you start the computer

    Well hello, look 3 messages down from yours to "wireless connection
    properties doesnt show". Welcome to my world, I have been working on this for
    2 days and nothing. Let me know if you get it sorted. Have tried all the
    recommended and am missing something somewhere. So best of luck.

    Make sure that no other s/w for wireless config is running.
    Especially look for Intel Proset or Adapter switch utilities.
    In properties of the wireless connection, uncheck all non-Microsoft's protocols.
