    I just upgraded from a Linksys wireless B to wireless G adapter. I was able
    to access the internet using the Wireless B but I had to call them for help
    because I could not get the Wireless G configured. Their response to me was
    that I needed to reinstall Windows XP to get to Wireless Zero Configuration
    because it is not available in my list of services. That seems a bit
    drastic. Does anyone know how to get this service? I believe it was
    originally available when I got the computer last month, but somewhere in the
    process of installing different brands of adapters (Netgear and Linksys) and
    numerous other updates it disappeared and now I get the message that Windows
    cannot configure this Wireless connection. I tried a system recovery back to
    before either adapter was installed (I think) but that didn't work. Any

  2. Open services and scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration Service,
    Start the service and set it to automatic. If it does not show in the
    list of Services:

    run regedit and find


    add a DWORD entry named "Start" and
    value "2"
