I am having trouble having windows configuring the wireless connection.

When I go to view the wireless networks, I get a message that says "Windows connot configure the wireless connection."

It instructs me if I want Windows to configure this wireless conenction, start the Wireless Zero Configuation (WZC) service.

It also states for information about starting the WZC service, to see article 871122 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base on the microsoft.com web site.

I did that and was told to use the following instructions to start the service:

Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.

I do all of that, and when I get there, it is already lsited as on "automatic."

I must do this every time I need to change my wireless conection.

Is there any help one out there that can point me in the right direction to correct this
probelm?

I thank you well in advance for your help.

Do you have another program that is set to configuring your wireless connection? A lot of wireless cards have their own software that configures your wireless connection.

I don't think so, because it was working find and then one day, this problem started.

Is there a way to check?

What would that icon be?

I used to have an icon that looked like the signal strengths on a cell phone (sort of like an increasing bar graph). It is not there anymore.

One icon I have in relation to the internet is monitor icon, with radiating waves when I am on the internet.

The other on is two monitors nexztz to each other with a red x on top of them.

Does any of that help?

Some things that would be helpful for the forum techs to know is:
Operating system,system environment(desktop/laptop etc)
broadband connection(cable/dsl)
do you have a router,if so make and model.
If both monitorss have red x's on them,that generally means that you have no ethernet/broadband connection
does your wireless connection device(laptop?)have a wireless adapter card,if so what make and model.
There are some connectivity test that can be run,but without knowing your system environment,it would be hit and miss
