    How do I keep wireless zero configuration running all the time?
    It stops when the computer is turned off or in hibernation for over night.
    Right now I have to reconfigure wzc, then I have to go thru network
    connections to reconfigure that before I can connect. I would like to connect
    without all of these steps!
    I have checked article 871122 from Microsoft, but that is WAY over my head
    (I am a retiree with very limited computer experience!).
    I am running Windows XP (service pack 2 as well). I have a linksys modem and
    a dynex adapter.

  20. Right-Click on MyComputer Icon and choose "Manage"
    Expand "Services and Applications" near the bottom
    Select "Services"
    Double-Click "Wireless Zero Configuration" on the right side
    Set the Startup type to "Automatic"
    Make sure it is currently "started".
