Wireless Connection and article 871122

    When I open my wireless network connection, I no longer
    get a list of wireless networks in range, but get the
    following message:

    Windows cannot configure this wireless connection
    If you have enabled another program to manage this
    wireless connection, use that software.
    If you want Windows to configure this wireless
    connection, start the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC)
    service. For information about starting the WZC service,
    see article 871122 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base on the
    microsoft.com Web site.

    Previously I could view the wireless networks in range.
    However, after unsuccesfully loading my SBC/Yahoo
    DSL/wireless gateway software, I apparently changed some
    settings that I can't change back and no where on the MS
    website is there anything that discusses my particular
    predicament. Sure, there are articles that seem to
    relate but in reality don't apply. In addition, I could
    not find this "article 871122."

    Can anyone please help?!?!?!

    Try here for Knowledgebase artice 871122:
    <http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;871122&Product=winxp>

    Sounds like the SBC/Yahoo software may have turned off Wireless Zero
    Configuration service. The article 871122 gives instructions on how to
    turn it back on.

    Thanks for helping point me to the appropriate link. The
    direction the article gave for restarting my WZC worked.

    I had a smilar problem and applied the steps to start the WZC service. BUT I have to go through these steps whenever I restart the computer. Is there a way to start the WZC so the I dont have to go through these steps whenever the computer restarts?
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    reconfigure Wireless Connection & article 871122

    This worked for Windows XP. First click on the wireless icon on the desktop..
    it will open the box for Wireless Network Connection-Choose a wireless network.
    On the left side of this box you will see Related Task....under this click on Change the order of preffered networks. At this point you have opened the box "Wireless Network Properties"....now look below and check mark the box next to "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings after this go to the bottom and click OK. Now close the box. Presto !!!!!! Good Luck everyone & I hope you find this information as being helpful.

    Yes, this works, although I find it better to go to Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, then Services, then click on WZC and start the service. The problem is, it resets when you restart the computer which basically means you have to go through this exercise whenever you start up and connect to wireless. Does anyone know how to prevent this happening?

    Hi i'm young social network programmer social work Sandu Felix
    i use modem connection ZTE by UMTS not Wifi, but i have same
    problems sometime to manage wifi as secondary conection backup
    on road to connect free at network wifi.
    I discovered with www.bing.com this issue Microsoft at site:
    http://www.ezlan.net/wzc.html

    Setting Windows Zero Configuration (WZC).
    Most Wireless Clients Cards (Laptop/computer) can be configured by a Manufacturer Wireless Utility that comes with the card, or Windows Zero Configuration (WZC)

    It is important that the Wireless should be managed only with one application.​
    You can use the Original Utility, or WZC. When one is used the other has to be Off (Not loaded into memory and not maintained active Windows service).

    Disabling the Manufacturer Wireless Utility should be explained in the Wireless Cards document.
    The following describes how to Check, and switch WZC On. The same principle applies in case you need to switch it Off, choose the Off/Stop options while you are at the menus (the same method can be used to configure other services too).
    1. Click Start and Run
    2. Type into the Run box "services.msc" (without the quotation).
    3. Scroll down and look for the service Wireless Zero Configuration

    Double Click on the Service, Screen Shot of the services
    4. Make sure that it is Started and that the startup type is set to automatic.
    Screen Shot of WZC
    If the Service did not Started, or and is Not set to Automatic.
    i stop for a while WZC from this run service.msc and disable
    and stop and automatic WZC and start finally for refresh WZC!!!

    HI ! Go to http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/?fi=50469

    Download the software (to a convenient location on Your computer) that is designed to fix the problem in no time. Just click "run". Then have a beer, and bless Microsoft for this golden software. You might have to run it again...and again later, and it explains nothing, but it fixes the problem every time it occurs. Good luck !
