Hi, hope I can get some help here. My laptop was able to recognize my network & signed on, no problem. It couldn't recognize other networks in the area, so if I went to a wifi hot spot, I was out of luck. I kept getting this message (paraphrase): "WZC wireless zero (configuration?)" with some numbers & stating I needed to go to that article number at the Microsoft website. Whenever I tried to refresh to see what networks were in the area, I got that message.

My modem/router quit working so I thought it was a good time to get it figured out. Due to the reference to the article, in the aforementioned paragraph, the PC tech had me put: %systemroot%\system32\services.msc /s, then "RUN". It came up with a service: SQL server configuration manager. The tech had to open another program associated with SQL or SQL is the associated program? The tech made a couple of settings & he was able to sign onto the wifi in their office. When I got home, there was this glitch in that I needed to restart to get onto my wireless network. Then I figured out that I could disable then re-enable.

I am able to recognize the networks in the area, but I have to go into "Network connections" then I have to go to "wireless network connection"; click "disable" then re-enable. After that, all is well. If the machine goes to sleep, I then have to go through those same steps again.

I also noticed that if I "restarted" or re booted, the laptop signs on to the wireless network. The laptop recognizes the available networks, but doesn't log on for some reason on the 1st time booting up.

It seems like it would be a simple fix, but I know nothing about network settings.

Thanks for your help.

First off, what is the make and model of the laptop? Have you attempted to get any updates for your wifi drivers? Have you performed all windows updates?

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1520.

I keep up on the updates & I never have been directed to update wifi drivers.

I was able to access the WZS by the same run query as in my 1st post:( %systemroot%\system32\services.msc /s). I looked at it & it is set on auto. But I remember the tech delving into another "service" on the menu; I forget which one?

Thank you both for looking on & trying to help me out. It just seems there is "simple" fix but I am racking my brain trying to figure what it is. I would like to know about updating wifi drivers? There is probably a topic addressed on the forum?
