    When I start my laptop I can connect to my home network but not to the
    Internet. That's because the wireless zero configuration service, even
    thought startup type is automatic, is stopped. When I start the service by
    running services.msc, click the wireless network tab in TCP/IP properties of
    my network connection and check the box to allow Windows to manage my network
    all is well. The problem is that when I stop and restart my laptop something
    stops the wireless zero configuration service and I have to go through the
    whole process again, every time.

    Will someone show me how to insure that the service, when it is started,
    continues to run, or restart, when the laptop is shut down and restarted?

    I am having the same problem as you. What kind of computer do you have?
    Mine are both Dell. I am also unable to connect anywhere else with my laptop
    except at home. I know very little about computers so any help would be
    greatly appreciated. Thabnks

    Is it worth turning off the widows wireless utility
    and reinstall the Broadcom interface utility and see if that works
    better than the windows wireless.
    I had a similar problem with a Belkin card and interface but in my case
    I disabled the Belkin " let this tool manage the wireless settings "
    and found the windows wireless util worked much better than the Belkin
    it still uses belkin drivers but never drops out now.

    The same thing was happening to me and it cost me $100 to have a tech guy fix it. So here it is.. after re starting Zero configuration again.. go to START then to ALL PROGRAMS then find your wireless card..( wireless utilities).. I have a gateway laptop with XP.. so I have a BROADCOM WIRELESS.. go to its UTILITIES....UNCHECK.. the box that says.. LET THIS TOOL MANAGE MY WIRELESS CONNECTIONS.... press apply and ok.. you shold be go to .. $100 over a little box.. DAMMMM.. :(
