    My school just ordered 8 Dell Latitude e5400 laptops. I was able to get
    them onto the wireless network just fine, but when I get off, the Wireless
    Zero Configuration turns off so the I can not reconnect. I have to restart
    first and then go back and put a check next to "let windows configure your
    wireless network" (or whatever it says) before I can get back on. Anyone
    have any ideas? Thanks!

    There should be a setting in the *DELL* wireless utility to let
    Windows manage the settings.

    There is, but the next time I try to connect, the check is gone and I have
    to keep setting it up all over again.
    Any ideas? Thanks!

  4. Yep, it does that.
    Contact Dell support, or simply uninstall the Dell wireless management
    software in Add/Remove Programs.

  5. Hi
    In some cases uninstalling the vendor's Wireless utility uninstalls the
    Drivers too.
    So first try to neutralize the Utility by getting it out of the StartUp.
