    Thinkpad T30 running XP pro. In order to use my wireless network I must run the services.msc program to start the wireless. I can connect to my neighbors unsecured wireless automatically but not my own secured network. Microsoft Bulletin # 871122 explains how to run the program but it is required to run every time I reboot. How do I permanently make the change??

    If the service isn't being affected by other processes the way I set it is, Computer Mangement>Services and Applications>Services>scroll down to Wireless Zero Config>Right click and choose properties and then change the start up type to Automatic and apply or ok.

    for some reason changing to automatic does not hold thru a reboot. Do I have to be Administrator for changing?

    Do you have another wireless utility running? One that turns off WZC each time it starts?

    Maybe an icon in the Notification Area? Maybe another service running with something like WLAN in its name? A task with some (name) relationship to the wireless adapter or wlan?
