My pc has a dlink pci network card i installed. It seems to work no problem, when i use just the driver and not install the dlink utility the card is installed but can never detect any networks. If i install the dlink utility it does find it.

I would prefer not to have any excess junk on my machine because with my laptop i just use the windows utility for detecting the networks. Yes, i do have the checkbox for the windows utility as well. The router is but 15 ft from the pc and its in the same room.

I'm not sure if you were referring to the 'Use Windows to configure my wireless network seetings' when you said "Yes, i do have the checkbox for the windows utility as well.".

On the Properties of your NIC (DLink) -> Wireless Networks tab - and check if the 'Use Windows ...' check box is ticked.

Also check if the NIC is enabled on Device Manager.

You shouldn't need to install any software to detect the APs.

Try installing Microsoft's WPA2 hotfix (KB893357). It might help:

Windows XP will display previously hidden Service Set Identifiers (SSIDs) in the Choose A Wireless Network dialog box. This functionality makes it easier for you to connect to public Wi-Fi networks to which you have not previously connected.

Also, make sure you have your router set to broadcast your SSID, otherwise you'll have to add it to your XP wireless configuration manually to see your network.

I do have the wireless zero configuration enabled in my services.

I did a restore and then it started working, so i linked it to the reg tweaks i applied.

I put a ; in front of the tweaks that should not be integrated into the registry. So i am unsure as to which tweak i allowed to be input thus creating this problem.

; Disable Firewall Service ,Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) / Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Provides network address translation, addressing, name resolution and/or intrusion prevention services for a home or small office network. Used to allow multiple computers on your network to access the internet via only one account. This service installs on the "modem" computer. If you are using a third party firewall or Internet Connection Sharing software package, this service is not required.

"Start"=dword:00000002

;Disable Telnet Service ,Enables a remote user to log on to this computer and run programs, and supports various TCP/IP Telnet clients, including; UNIX-based and Windows-based computers. If this service is stopped, remote user access to programs might be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. This service is not available on Windows XP Home. It allows remote login to the local computer via the telnet function. For security reasons, disable this unless you specifically require its functionality. You will save about 2 MB of RAM by plugging this security hole.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TlntSvr]
"Start"=dword:00000004

; Disable Web Client Service, Enables Windows-based programs to create, access, and modify Internet-based files. If this service is stopped, these functions will not be available. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. I have not found a reason to have this service running. I have a hunch that this is going to be required for Microsoft's ".Net Software as a service." For security reasons, I recommend for this service to be disabled. If some MS products, such as MSN Explorer, Media Player, NetMeeting or Messenger fail to provide a particular function, try to enable this service to see if it is” required" for your configuration.

;Disable Upload Manager Service , Manages synchronous and asynchronous file transfers between clients and servers on the network. If this service is stopped, synchronous and asynchronous file transfers between clients and servers on the network will not occur. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. This service sends driver information to Microsoft to track availability of driver information. This service is not required for basic File and Print sharing. I do not have yet to find a need for this service, nor do I wish to send my hardware information to Microsoft.

"Start"=dword:00000004

;Themes Service ,The themes service is responsible for Visual Styles. Using Microsoft® Windows® XP, you can now define the visual style or appearance of controls and windows from simple colors to textures and shapes. You can control each defined part of a control as well as each part of the non-client (frame and caption) area of a window. The user can then use the Appearance tab in the Windows Control Panel to switch between the classic visual style and other available styles.A visual style is included with the Windows XP release. Using helper libraries and application programming interfaces (APIs),you can incorporate the Windows XP visual style into your application with few code changes. For more information, see the Platform SDK documentation in the MSDN Library.If your memory conscious and does not care about the "new" XP look, disable this service to save RAM. I have observed between 4 MB to 12 MB of RAM used for the new themes.

;[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Themes]
"Start"=dword:00000002

;Disable Protected Storage Service, Provides protected storage for sensitive data, such as private keys, to prevent access by unauthorized services, processes, orusers. Other wise known as auto complete in Internet Explorer. Allows for the saving of local passwords or even web sites information (AutoComplete). This service is set to Automatic by default. Due to security reasons, I recommend leaving this "feature" disabled to make things all that much more difficult to steal vital information if you do not "save" it. On the other hand, you may need this service to manage private keys for;encryption purposes. If so, leave this service on automatic to ensure the "higher" security settings you choose work. If you disable this service, you will no longer have any of your passwords saved, no matter how many times you click the box. If you enjoy having your passwords saved in applications like Outlook or Dial up networking or you are connecting to the internet via a domain controller/server that requires authentication

"Start"=dword:00000004

;Disable Fast User Switching Service, Provides management for applications that require assistance in a multiple user environment. This service is responsible for letting you stayed logged in as more than one user. Unless you have many users on a system, you probably do not even need this service to be running. You could benefit, however, greatly if you use this service in conjunction with many users on your local computer to allow switching users without closing all existing applications running under a different account.

;[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FastUserSwitchingCompatibility]
"Start"=dword:00000002

;Disable Computer Browser Service, Maintains an updated list of computers on the network and supplies this list to computers designated as browsers. If this service is stopped, this list will not be updated or maintained. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. Computer Browser service maintains a listing of computers and resources located on the network. This service is not required on a standalone system. In fact, even if you want to browse the network (workgroup or domain) or have mapped network shares as local hard drives, you can still do so. On a large network, one computer is designated the "master" browser and another one is the "backup" browser. All others just announce they are available every 12 minutes to "take over" duties if one of the other computers fail. No lag time is discernable if this service remains disabled on all but one computer. Honestly, I donot even believe one needs to be running. You could, "just in case," but it sure does not need to be running on all computers, all of the time.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser]
"Start"=dword:00000004

;Disable Alerter Service, (NOT NEEDED FOR SP2) Notifies selected users and computers of administrative alerts. If the service is stopped, programs that use administrative alerts will not receive them. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. The Alerter service notifies users of administrative alerts on a network. This service usually is not required under normal circumstances. Note: This is NOT "Win Pop Up."

;Disable Help and Support Service, Enables Help and Support Center to run on this computer. If this service is stopped, Help and Support Center will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. This service is required for Microsoft's online (or offline) help documents. If you ever "attempt" to use Help and Support, theservice places itself back into "Automatic" and starts even if you already had this service on disabled.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\helpsvc]
"Start"=dword:00000004

;Disable Task Scheduler Service ,Enables a user to configure and schedule automated tasks on this computer. If this service is stopped, these tasks will not be run at their scheduled times. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. You use this service to schedule maintenance, Microsoft Backup sessions, or maybe even Auto Update. I do everything manually, to avoid having this service running all the time. Some third party software may require this service to be active for;automated functions, such as virus scanners, system maintenance tools, and automatic patch/driver look ups.Take note:BootVis requires Task Scheduler and COM+ Event System to be running if you wish to take advantage of the "optimize system" function. Why may you need this service? It is due to the pre-fetching function built into Windows XP.Another Note: Pre-fetching only occurs on boot up and application start, so if you do not care about a few extra seconds of boot time, do not even bother with it and disable Task Scheduler. On some applications, the pre-fetching feature really does help. Only you candecide whether to use its functionality and if it helps in the performance of your system.

"Start"=dword:00000003

;Set Print Spooler to "Auto" Service Loads files to memory for later printing. Queues up print jobs for later printing. This service is required if you have printers, even if they are network printers. If this does not fit your needs, disable it. You will save about 3.8 MB by making this service go away. Your printers will still be" installed" if you disable this service, but not visible in the printers folder. After restarting Print Spooler, they will re appear and be available for use. I place this service into manual mode and only start it up when printing is required. In manual mode, the service will not automatically start at boot time.

;Disable Secondary Log-on Service ,Enables starting processes under alternate credentials. If this service is stopped, this type of logon access will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. Enables starting processes under alternate credentials. I have never found a reason to keep this service running. I have always considered "Alternate Credentials" someone other than me! Not my idea of fun... Really, though, it allows a "limited user" account to start an application or process with higher privileges, such as the Administrator account or another user. You can also have a privileged user start an application or process with limited privileged account. If you right-click a file, the menu will display "Run As" option. If you disable this service, that function will no longer be available.

;Disable Performance Logs & Alerts Service ,Collects performance data from local or remote computers based on preconfigured schedule parameters, then writes the data to a log or triggers an alert. If this service is stopped, performance information will not be collected. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. Collect performance data on a schedule and send the information to a log or trigger an alert. This may be a super geek tool, but I feel that the overhead associated with it is not worth the benefit. You decide.

; Disable Telephony Service ,Provides Telephony API (TAPI) support for programs that control telephony devices and IP based voice connections on the local computer and, through the LAN, on servers that are also running the service. Controls telephony devices on the local computer. This service is required for dial-up modem connectivity. Note: you may require this service for some direct cable or DSL providers, depending on how they implement their logon process or some AOL functionality, depending on software used. If Dial-up, cable or DSL internet access no longer functions properly with this service disabled, place it into automatic. If you are connecting via a hardware router or gateway, this service is not needed.

;Disable Wireless Zero Configuration Service ,Provides automatic configuration for the 802.11 adapters Provides automatic configuration for wireless network devices and connection quality feedback. If you do not have any wireless network devices in use on the local system, disable this service. You may require this service for connectivity with some "hot sync" software for a PDA, laptop or other portable computer.

;[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WZCSVC]

;Disable TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper Service ,Enables support for NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) service and NetBIOS name resolution. This feature provides legacy support for NetBIOS over TCP/IP. If your network does not use NetBIOS and / or WINS, disable; this function.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LmHosts]
"Start"=dword:00000003

;Disable Remote Desktop Help Session Manager Service ,Manages and controls Remote Assistance. If this service is stopped, Remote Assistance will be unavailable. Before stopping this service, see the Dependencies tab of the Properties dialog box. Manages and controls Remote Assistance. If you do not want or need to use this feature, disable it. In an idle state, this service sucks up 3.4 MB to 4 MB of RAM.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RDSessMgr]

;Disable Routing and Remote Access Service ,Offers routing services to businesses in local area and wide area network environments. Allows computers to dial in to the local computer through a modem (or other devices) to access the local network using a standard or VPN connection. Unless you require this functionality, disable it for security reasons. Upon enabling this service,” Incoming Connections" icon will be available in the "Network Connections" control panel.

"Start"=dword:00000004

;Disable Clip Book Service ,Enables Clip Book Viewer to store information and share it with remote computers. If the service is stopped, Clip Book Viewer will not be able to share information with remote computers. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend omit will fail to start. Used to store information (cut / paste) and share it with other computers. I have never found enough need for this to allow this service to always be running. This service alone uses about 1.3 MB of memory.

"Start"=dword:00000004

;Disable Error Reporting Service ,Allows error reporting for services and applications running in non-standard environments. Calls home to Microsoft when application errors occur. I personally do not like this. I feel it is a waste of memory and resources. On the other hand, if you are experiencing system crashes often, the best way to deal with them is to report them using this tool.

; Disable Indexing Service ,Indexes contents and properties of files on local and remote computers; provides rapid access to files through flexible querying language. This service always has been a major resource hog. I NEVER recommend having this service enabled. Remove the function via the "Add / Remove Programs" icon in the control panel (Windows Setup Programs). It uses about 500 K to 2 MB in an idle state, not to mention the amount of memory and CPU resources it takes to INDEX the drives. I have had people (and witnessed it on other people's computers) report to me that the Indexing Service sometimes starts up EVEN while the systemise NOT idle... as in the middle of a game. You may feel, as I do, that this is unacceptable. If your computer suddenly seems” sluggish," Indexing Service is usually the cause of it.

;Disable Imapi CD-Burning Service , Manages CD recording using Image Mastering Applications Programming Interface (IMAPI). If this service is stopped, this computer will be unable to record CDs. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. This service operates that cool "drag and drop" CD burn capability. You will need this service to burn CD's. What is the goodness? If you set this service to manual, the service starts and stops itself when used with some software packages. This is practically the only service that does do this! If you still cannot burn a CD with it on manual, switch to automatic and feel safe that it starts only when "needed." This service may take up about 1.6 MB of memory in an idle state.

If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. This feature is not available on Windows XP Home. This is one of those not needed services. One of the first I disable. If you’re paranoid about security, disable this service. Even if you are not or do not care, disable it anyway. DISABLE IT NOW!!

;Disable SSDP Discovery Service (Universal Plug'n'Play) ,enables discovery of UPnP devices on your home network. Used to locate UPnP devices on your home network. Used in conjunction with Universal Plug and Play Device Host, it detects and configures UPnP devices on your home network. For security reasons and for the fact that I doubt that you have any of these devices, disable this service. If any EXTERNAL device does not function because of this service being disabled, place it back in to automatic. MSN Messenger uses this service in conjunction with supported UPnP devices, to provide support for networks behind a NAT firewall or router. Also, if you are experiencing difficulty connecting to multiplayer games that useDirectX(7,8,9), place this service to automatic and ensure you download all security updates. The problem that I have found with this service is that it broadcasts UDP port 1900 "a lot." If you notice plenty of network activity even though nothing is happening, this service is sometimes the cause. Take note: UPnP is NOT PnP. UPnP is for connectivity on networks via TCP/IP to devices, such as scanners or printers. Your sound card is PnP. Do NOT disable Plug and Play service.

;Disable Windows Time Service ,Maintains date and time synchronization on all clients and servers in the network. If this service is stopped, date and time synchronization will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start. Automatically sets your clock by contacting a server (Microsoft's server by default) on the internet. Great idea if your network connects to the internet 24/7. The Event Log fills up with "cannot find server" messages on a non-dedicated setup, though. After successful synchronizing, this service will not attempt to do it again for 7 days, meanwhile, taking up resources. You may also need Task Scheduler running. You may choose to set your clock manually on a dial up connection, but with a 24/7broadband setup, this could keep you on time for work. Note: as mentioned, "time.windows.com" is the default server for synchronization. For those privacy conscious people that prefer to connect to a government site rather then MS, use;"time.nist.gov."

So Wireless Zero was working, you applied that .reg and it broke your Wireless Zero? If so, reset back to defaults...if it works that way, selectively apply the reg tweaks until you find the offending one.

Here's my experience

~: The Wireless Zero Configuration services was set to Automatic and the service was set to control my wireless connections.
~: I could automatically connect to my wireless router, but could not VIEW any networks via the Wireless Zero Configuration controls.
~: There was no Third Party software installed for managing wireless connections
~: Having "Automatically connect to non-preferred networks" CHECKED within the interface's driver allowed the adapter to connect to my router automatically.


~/~Having the EVENT LOG service Disabled was apparently the culprit in this situation. Having re-enabled it Wireless Zero Configuration can now view all networks that broadcast their SSID.

Hope that helps someone.

Please don't ever disable the event log service - this code lives in services.exe, and can cause... interesting.... behavior with all sorts of things running as services. There's really no reason to disable this service that I can think of, either.

Absolutley, I can't think of a single reason why you would want to disable this service either. It's nothing but handy. The above case was on Joe Schmoe's laptop and he apparently went hog wild attempting to speed up XP by disabling numerous services.

Hi am having the same problem here, i am using a HP laptop and its giving me that same message "no wireless network found in range" plus before when it sees the wireless networks it see a default and the linksys, what i would love to do is to automatically connect to the linksys without asking to choose network to connect to.

i was had the network key in and the WEP

ok, i found the solution, all i had to do was

Go to MyComputer | Manage | Services and stop the Dell/Broadcom
connection manager. Then start "Windows Zero Configuration" and
make it "Automatic" on startup.


Then configure that manager:
ViewWirelessNetworks
ChangeAdvancedSettings
WirelessNetworks tab
Advanced
X Access point (infrastructure) networks only
O Automatically connect to non-preferred networks (un-check)

Not only that, but the event logs are completely memory-mapped, so disk hits are minimal. Memory-mapped files bypass the paging file when I/O operations are requested on them, and only sections of the file that are requested for use at the time are "mapped" and used, decreasing I/O. Also, I/O from memory-mapped files is committed to disk via the cache manager, so a committed I/O write isn't necessarily written to disk right then and there, but written to disk at a later time at a lazy interval (unless the FlushViewOfFile function is used, in which case we do just that if possible). For those who care, you can read more about how memory-mapped files work here, or bust out your handy "Windows Internals, 4th Edition" book (and I suppose if you do care about this, you've probably already read many times over chapter 7 anyway :)).
