Wireless Configuration Error

Q: Wireless Configuration Error

Immediately after upgrading to IE8, a Wireless Configuration error message began appearing and will not close even when I reboot my Acer Aspire 5600. It reads as follows:

Incorrect MFC Dll version installed on system, minimum requirement is MFC SP4 dll.

I located an answer from Dell for their computers in these Forums, but can't find anything here for Acer. Any help would be appreciated.

running winxp

tried tweaking some startup stuff to cut down on what was running to help speed up my comp and deleted some unused programs,which i think must have had the dll file in it....

dunno what i did wrong as i thought i turned everything back to the way it was but im still getting this stupid error,again i am thinking the notification dll files were possibly in one of the old programs i deleted

"Notification dll
has not been registered program will not work correctly"

immediate upon bootup and starting to access my desktop i get that error

network connections is empty

i cannot drag and drop now either

i cannot access any wireless connection to get online with that laptop and download any fixes or anything

tried a few other fixes i found elsewhere,none worked and gave me this message when i tried

ethernet adapter wireless network connection 2:
media state........:media disconnected

ethernet adapter local area connection:
media state........:media disconnected

and if its relevant and helps solve it, as soon as i hit enter, i can get around on y desktop minus the toolbar,yet immediately it pops up not one but two of the same folders system32

and in the services section,it will not let me start alot of the various services that seem like they need to be running to access my wireless stuff

any help is appreciated,thanks

I keep getting this error: "Wireless Connection doesnt have a valid IP Configuration" and there is a little yellow triangle on the WIFI connection I am trying to connect to. This connection is my next door neighbors and I have FULL PERMISSION to be using it, so no issues there. My problem is that now it is not letting me connect to it. Another error I saw was something about conflicting IP's.

What can I do to fix this? My neighbor lets me use his wifi for school because Im a virtual school student overseas and I have a lot of homework online and am in need of high speed internet. I am behind on several on my assignments and there's only 2 weeks of school left. Please help me connect to the wifi, it would mean so much to me.

I am currently trying to download ubuntu because I know I wont have this issue on there but my current internet speed is SO SLOW its saying I need a whole day to download it and that's too long.

I have windows 7 home premium

I accidentally uninstalled the Security Accounts Manager Service through a batch file containing the sc delete samss command. Ever since then I had these problems with WZC.

Problems:
1) The wireless list (View wireless network) is not showing no matter how i refresh it with wireless zero configuration. The service is indeed started already on my xp.
2) All the old preferred network lists are gone too and even if i add new one it won't show.
3) Somehow it still auto connects to the wireless point which i have been using (with and without WPA) even when the preferred network list is not showing up.

I am able to connect to the internet with the Belkin wireless network utility. I assume windows cannot use the preferred network list (user names and passwords) because SamSs is missing. If anyone knows how to reinstall this service or solve this problem, I would appreciate the advice.

everytime I go to get on the internet on my laptop, it doesn't detect anything. So, I have to manually go into Services and start the wireless zero configuration because otherwise the wireless networks tab doesn't show up under network connections for wireless. Then, once the tab shows up, I have to go into wireless networks and check the box that says "use windows to configure my wireless network settings." How can I fix my computer so I don't have to do this every single time I want to get online?

A:wireless zero configuration/wireless network help

In services make sure the Wireless Zero Configuration start up type is set to Automatic not Manual. It sounds like your wireless came with software that configures the wireless networks. You can either disable that software from managing wireless and let Windows manage the Wireless or uninstall it.

I have a simple wireless router at my house that works fine with my laptop and my wife's. I've been working on my inlaws laptop this past week getting it rid of some virus and spyware issues (with much help from these forums).

My network issue is this: each time I reboot the machine, I have to restart Wireless Zero Configuration. Otherwise, it won't find my wireless connection (I get that error when I try to choose a wireless network that says windows can't set up a wireless network).

This laptop used to be hooked to a Linksys Easy Advisor router deal at their house. I uninstalled that, but I'm thinking maybe there is an issue leftover from that?

I hope this gives enough info to get started looking at some solutions so that this will recognize wireless signals without having to reset the WZC each time.

Thanks!

Hi,

I have just upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7 recently but currently I'm face with a problem.

After connecting with the wireless net at home, I have no internet access. It says "Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".

I read on websites that I should change the TCP/IPv6 and TCP/IPv4 to automatically acquiring IP address and DNS server address, but to no avail. I tried using the CMD but don't really understand how the IPCONFIG/ALL and IPCONFIG/FLUSHDNS work. I also tried changing the last 3 digits of the IP address to a higher number but also to no avail.

Done all that I could do, but I still can't access to internet though I could connect to the wireless.

Can anyone help? Your effort is much appreciated. =)

Hey Guys,

I have a Linksys Wireless G router. One desktop connected via ethernet and 2 wireless laptops. The desktop is configured to print to my local printer. My laptops can access the router fine and access the internet. Can I also have my wireless laptops print to this printer? I' m sure I would need to load the drivers for the printer but what steps should I take? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Wireless Configuration

I take it you are using Windows XP, in which case it is fairly simple
Firstly, on the computer directly connected to the printer, go to the control panel, into Printers and Faxes, and then right click on the printer. Click on sharing, and then slect "Share this printer".
hit ok, and then go onto your laptops.
On the laptops, go into the Priters and Faxes again, and click on "Add a Printer".
hit next, and then click on "add a network printer, or a printer attached to another computer"
Click on browse for a printer (should already be highlighted) and click next.
It will search for all the printers on the network, and then simply select the one you wish to add.
A security warning box might pop up at this stage, simply hot yes to install the drivers.
and you're set! Just set that printer to your default printer.

Hello...

I read this thread with much interest as I am having the same problem. I have got the Linksys WAP v2.0 connected directly to a cable modem. I would like to use the good advice given above (hopefully it applies to me too). I am getting the same access violation error and cannot enable security on the wireless network.

When you said connect directly, do you mean connect my laptop to the WAP by ethernet cable and set up a network connection with the IP address you specified?

Apologies for ressurecting this old thread, if any of you have a few minutes to clarify it would be much appreciated.

Thanks so much

I use the DWA-552 Linksys wireless card on my PC. I would like to create either a bridge (which seems complicated) to my RNX-N100 USB Wireless dongle. The reason being, I am going to use the RNX to get access to the internet for my Blu-Ray player (BD-C5500T). I have looked everywhere and cannot find any info on the setup. The other way is to connect the PC to my T.V. as my integrated card has an HDMI port and bridge the wireless connection with the integrated wired connection (if that is possible) so i can gain internet access to my Blu-Ray player. I have tried to configure with my player and no-go. It works fine when i configure the RNX on my PC though.

My new dell inspiron 1520 laptop is having a few problems. The computer cannot connect to wireless networks. It picks up and shows that it is able to pick them up...but it cannot connect to any of them. And these connections are unsecured - so there should be no problem. I have another Dell laptop and a desktop that get on these networks and other networks with out a problem. Please keep in mind the connections are unsecured and contain no mac filtering. I have called Dell 3 times. Each time we have had to continue the call later... It has become very frustrating having to call and never having any results. This is how it happens: Turn the computer on It automatically connects to an unsecured connection It shows in the task bar that it is picking up the signal and "connected" But then it says that it has none or limited connectivity. I just want to be able to get online! Please help if you can! Thanks, Mallory

Hello.

Everytime I shut down my Dell Inspiron laptop, Windows' Wireless Zero Configuration service shuts down. So, everytime I start the computer, I have to restart the service, go into Wireless Network Connection Properties and reclick "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" to be able to access the internet. Is there a way to make sure WZC stays on permanently? When I hit START on the activity, I'm not given the option to hit APPLY.

Thanks.
 

A:Wireless Zero Configuration

You should be able to go into WZC and select to connect to your network, then UNCHECK "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings". That will prevent Windows from trying to connect to any other network but your own.

Edit - sorry I didn't see the other part of the problem. Go to start, run and type services.msc. Scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and make sure startup type is set to Automatic.

my "Preferred network" list and all is working fine.

The problem is that if I select"View Wireless Networks" in the "Available networks:" none
are listed. Even if I do a refresh under the "Refresh networks list" it
seraches and them says "No wireless networks found inrange".

I have an "Excellent" signal strength at 54mbps.

I had a Linksysy PCI card in initially (WMP54G) which worked as well as

Hi, I'm saving up for an iBook and I'm planning to get my house equipped with wireless connectivity for it.

I think I've got it right, but I gotta be sure..

The iBook will have an Airport Extreme card, which is compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g standards.

I have a wired router with a free port, so I was thinking of getting this wireless access point:

D-Link Wireless 2.4GHz Access Point

Which is compatible with 802.11b.

I am assuming I can just hook that into my wired router's 4th port and be able to connect from the iBook. Is this the right thing I need? I don't want to buy a new router--I just need to turn my wired network into a wireless one for one computer..and the other 3 can stay wired.

Oh, and I don't need 802.11g for my network. My internet is only a 1.2MB connection, and I don't do much network stuff.

Thanks for your help!
 

A:Please comfirm this wireless configuration

Looks OK to me.

I ran a wireless router with two ports have wired connections. 11g gives you a better range though. With the ibook networked you can transfer files around and use the printer in the system so there will be traffic between computers eventually.

Also the transmission throughput will drop according to the distance. 11g devices automatically adjust themselves. You rarely get the 54Mbps promised by 11g but 11b will suffer more by its maximum 11Mbps starting point. The prices between the two is small nowaday.

I've been having problems getting Dlink wireless adapters to work on my system. It's Win98se and when I get to the point of loading the configuration utility the system freezes.

I've managed to get what looks like a good driver for the PCI card installed but I can't install the wireless configuration utility from the CD without also installing the driver from the CD which will replace the working driver I have now. I have tried that several times and it always freezes the system when loading systray.

I got Dlink Tech Support to get me through the process of loading current drivers but they have told me I must use a 3rd party configuration utility since Win98se does not have such a utility built in. That's when they stop talking to me.

I tried Boingo but is fails with a Globals fatal error.

Does anyone know of any other wireless configuration utilities I might be able to sue?
 

A:wireless configuration utility

Have you tried downloading Dlink's utility from their web site?

My experience with several adaptors is that on the manufacturer's web site the utility and driver are bundled for download, so you get the right utililty for the version of the driver.

Alright.

I'm working on a HP Pavilion dv6000 Entertainment Notebook. It uses a built in WiFi to connect to the internet. For some unknown reason it states "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection" "If you have enabled another program to manage this wireless connection, use that software." For one I know there is no other software on the laptop that is running. Okay from there I've gone into services.msc and started the service since it was stopped. The first couple times I preformed that action on the laptop it worked fine, I connected to the access point and the internet. After I restarted to test it to make sure it would work... BAM! It stopped working after the restart. I re-activated the service once again since it switched to "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection" and now it won't even connect to anything. It's strange and I need some help on how to keep this service activated. For some reason i think Norton has something to do with this ordeal. Damn Norton

I tried a lot of things including changing the DNS and IP of my wireless adapter.

I found that I need to fill in the IP address, gateway IP, and the DNS to connect to the internet. However, I need to put the Gateway IP, for example: 192.168.1.254 into the DNS field in order to connect to the internet through my modem.

That is the nice part.
The worst part is: I couldn't connect to any other wireless hotspot other than my own. T_T

What should I do now?

Also, it won't allow me to connect to the internet if I only fill in the DNS with the gateway IP. I also need to fill in the IP address and the gateway.

my wireless network adapter is:
Intel 3945ABG wireless network adapter

IP protocol version 4 could connect to my modem this way, but IP protocol version 6 always has a limited connection.

When I change the IP protocol version 4 to "obtain IP address automatically" and obtain DNS automatically,
it will show like this in Command prompt if I type in "ipconfig /all"

A:Messed up with my Wireless configuration..

First off, setting the IP address to the one you want will not deny access to other routers...

Are you using a router to connect? Or are you straight to the modem? If so, you want to set up the computer to match the modem settings. Example:

Modem: IP address- 192.168.0.7
Computer: IP address- 192.168.0.107
DNS Server: 192.168.0.7
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Also, in the connection properties, where you see IPv4 and IPv6, almost nothing uses IPv6 so just disable it.

Then it will connect just fine. Now here is the tricky thing. Lets say you take your laptop or computer to someone elses house to use a access point there, you'll need to change all of those settings back to: 'Find a IP address automatically' then everything will work where ever you are. Hope this helps

four year old desk top running on win 98SE. the motherboard accepts the older usb 1.0 but i understand this accepts the newer 2.0 adapters. i live in hermosa beach which has free wireless internet near city hall. my neighbors are able to connect ok.

i installed a belkin usb 2.0 adapter and it worked for about a week. it was mainly conecting from other people's routers but it worked. it then stopped working. i troubleshooted with their tech asisstance with reinstalling, etc. it no longer connected even though it showed a signal. they said it was my server not the program and not my computer.

i installed a wi-fi card and did not work at all.

i intalled a netgear adapter. it worked for a day. it shows several green signals from other routers that are as low as 60%. it shows a red signal from hermosa wireless, even though it shows a 70% signal. i get no connection from any signal. the tech people say it is with the supplier (hermosa wireless). but my neighbors connect ok.

Hello everyone,

I keep having this problem with my Wireless Network, I can let the laptop run all day long after resetting it, and poof, have to reset it again. What is causing this laptop not to keep the settings? Operating system is XP Home, Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1501 and wireless router is a Belkin N wireless. Main computer is hard wired and i have no issues with it. What i have to do each time.

1. Go to Run type in Services.MSC Click the box that lets Windows configure wireless connection, then go to the bottom and find Wireless Zero Configuration.

2. The box that says Service status is always back to Stopped, so i start it, then back to my network connections, right click on wireless connections, then properties. Click on wireless network tab, Minimize the services window and open network connections window again. Right click on Wireless Connection and click Properties. Now there should be 3 tabs. Select the Wireless Network tab, Click the box to use windows to configure my Wireless Connection. Remove all network names from &#8220;Preferred Network&#8221;, Right click on Wireless Connection and click View available Wireless Network, Highlight your connection name and click connect. Type in your Key / Password from your router.

This gets old, and i would love to know how to lock this function so that i can keep my laptop always looking at my network.
 

A:Wireless Zero Configuration questions???

In the Start Up Type column to the right of the status, it says Manual.
You need to change this to Automatic.

Open Services.MSC and go to WZC.
Right click on WZC and select Properties
On the General tab of the window that comes up, click the arrow head to the right of the Startup Type box and select Automatic.
Click Apply and OK

HI

i have tried to solve 2 wireless problems before here but to no avail
Ill try discussing another problem.

Sometimes, my wireless internet stops working. My adaptr shows the network, but it automatically logs out. When i try to log in, i get a message that the network settings on my computer are different from the network settings. To make it work again i have to switch my wiress adaptor off and turn it on again, then it works fine.

i tried this at a friend. my wireless logged off, when i tried to log in, it repeadly said that i am entering the wrong password. then i rsstarted my wireless adapotr and the same password worked fine.

what is this!?!?!
 

A:Wireless configuration changing?

likely you have connected to multiple hotspots (or any number of friends) WiFi sites
and this can lead to attempts to login to the wrong system.

with the WiFi active there should be a wifi icon in the system tray. click on it to

then click on the one you want to access

Hi there,

I'm having some problems with my computer and I was wondering if anyone could help me out.
Everytime I turn my computer on it won't connect to any wireless network. It says that the Wireless Zero Configuration is inactive. So I tried to activate it through services.msc and it gave me an error message ("Could not start the Wireless Zero Configuration service on Local Computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.")
After a lot of work looking for a solution to this problem, I found a way to fix it by going to the regedit, in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndisuio and changing the Start value from 4 to 1. I thought I had solved all my problems, but everytime I turn off the computer and turn it back on I get the same problem, having to go to regedit and restart the computer for the internet to work.
Before this problem I always used Windows to connect to my wireless network and I don't have any other program for that purpose.
I tried to scan my PC for viruses and my antivirus (Symantec Corporate Edition) couldn't open properly, saying that it couldn't find a .exe file. I tried to install other antivirus programs like AVG and Avast and they both had problems during instalation, also saying that they couldn't find or create some .exe file. I used an online antivirus (Trend) and it did find some problems, and suposedly fixed them, but it changed nothing. I don't know what else to do! Please, help me! :)

Hello,

I am a bit new to the wireless world and can't seem to figure out why I am having problems. I had a wireless b router and card but I found it was very slow and would disconnect often, so I purchased a motorola wireless g card and a gigafast router. I followed all the instructions carefully and set my desktop to the ip address indicated and set my laptop to obtain an ip automatically. My g connection is still slow and often disconnects. It is always low. I tried renewing the ip on both computers, setting a specific ip on my laptop and so on. So far nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any idea what I can do? On my desktop I have my router which is at a set ip and my modem is set up to obtain it automatically, as is my laptop.

Thanks in advance,

Hi guys,

I had a new modem/router put in my home yesterday from our broadband provider however since having it I've had nothing but issues. Our previous router never caused any issues despite being old. This is wireless btw.

There have been countless problems, I'll list them below so its easier for you to read.

1. Keeps disconnecting.
2. Alot of the time when the adapter is connected to the router it says 'no internet access'
3. unknown network symbol.
4. Only usually connects late at night or specific times of the day
5. Sometimes if can't even pick up the router!

6. troubleshoot messages have ranged from:

-wireless doesnt have a valid IP configuration

-problem with wireless adapter or access point

-the default gateway is not available


I'm really getting sick and tired of this and I feel powerless because I house share with people and there all enjoying there super fast broadband with no problems.

I have windows 7 64-bit if that helps?

Thanks to anyone who replies!

A:wireless doesnt have a valid IP configuration?

Sounds like your new router could be using a channel that's being heavily used already in your area. Connect to it via wire, log in to the administrative interface, and try changing the channel setting. This may require a bit of trial and error as wifi channel bands overlap each other and can interfere with each other. You can also try turning up the transmit power on the wireless radio, use WPA or WPA2 instead of WEP (if it is using WEP right now), turning off 802.11b support, and make sure (though this is unlikely) that it's operating strictly in 20MHz mode, not mixed or 40MHz mode.

Hi there,

My laptop runs on a wireless network at home, but lately, the Wireless Zero Configuration Utility has been acting up. When my laptop becomes connected to the home network, the service itself will go from "Started", to "Stopping". So basically, using the Wireless Zero means that I can only stay online for a couple of seconds before the service resets itself to "Stopping", and back to "started". I'm not really sure what's happening, nor have I received any error codes or messages. All i know is, my Wireless Zero Configuration Utility is switching on and off. The only way I could get online, was to wait for the service to connect me to my network, and disable the service once i was connected, so that it wouldn't reset itself every 10 seconds. Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I'm having a serious problem with my laptop (an Acer) which i cannot seem to find any reference to anywhere... at all. My problem is that when i attempt to connect to my wireless network, which is very much in range and works for all of my other three laptops, this acer laptop cannot find my network, nor any other network at all as it seems. it says something along the lines of "windows cannot configure this wireless network... if you want to use windows to configure your wireless network, use the wireless zero configuration tool.." Now, i did use the wireless zero configuration tool once, I simply opened its "properties" menu, switched it to automatic, stopped it, then started it again, and this first time, it worked perfectly, my computer could once again detect wireless networks. Now, unfortunately, the problem reappeared, and i attempted to remedy it as i had earlier, but alas, when i accessed the wireless zero configuration tool, i found that it was not in the "start" gear, it was stopped. So i pressed "start", and i get a message that says something along the lines of "Wireless zero.. has started and stopped again. Some services stop automatically if they are no longer needed.." However, contrary to what windows seems to so abnoxiously claim, it did not solve the problem as it had before, as my computer could still not detect a single wireless network. I have battled with this endlessly to no end.

A:windows wireless configuration problems

Acer supplies it's own configuration tool. It should have an option in it to allow you to use Windows instead.

Second thought, did you maybe, accidentally, turn off your wireless? Many Acers have a hard switch on it somewhere. My old (pre Gateway merger) Acer has it's switch on the front. Unfortunately, it's very easy to accidentally press it... ;-)

If it doesn't have a hard switch, it should have a key combination for this, usually fn+something. Or, it could even have a discreet button somewhere near or on the keyboard.

Hi, I am interested in finding out if it is possible (well I'm sure it is, what I really need is how I might go about doing it) to create a script that will go and automatically configure a freshly imaged laptop its WiFi settings to connect to my school's network. In essence what the script needs to do is add a network that it will automatically join with its SSID, set it to WPA-TKIP, and PEAP. Also in addition to that it would be nice if the script could also have the ability to install the network's Certs, attach it to the domain, and configure power settings for the Wireless card (though I already have a method for doing that).

So I'm just wondering if anyone has an idea on how I would go about making such a script that would do all those things. If you could just point me in the right direction, that would be a great help. I've done some searching for this, but so far I have no come out with anything very helpful.

I ended up ACCIDENTALLY deleting the wireless network icon (or something to that effect) and the black netgear icon disappeared.

The icons are back (now is says 'wireless connection 2' and the internet works for a while then errors start popping up and when I click on 'network connections' it says:

I called NETGEAR. No help. I called SBC. No help.

Hi,

Got a lovely wireless network set up that works like a charm. BUT then I tried to add my new laptop to it and all hell's broken loose!

After numerous calls to the helpline and uninstalling/reinstalling everything, the tech guy finally realised that Wireless Zero Configuration is stopped on my laptop and even when I start it in services.msc, it stops again at once!

He thought I may have something corrupt somewhere and suggested I do a recovery of it, and mentioned something about chkdsk/r.

Okay ... what does that mean? Does that mean using the recovery disks and wiping the hard drive? I really don't want to do that if I can possibly avoid it, because there's some pretty expensive software installed on it that was put on for my university course that I don't have the discs for any more!

But if that's the only option I guess I'll just have to swallow it.

Thanks in advance for any help. If you need any more information, I'll be happy to provide it.

Hello all!

I've had this problem since I bought a new desktop PC with windows 7 installed. Every once in a while my internet stops working (router+modem) and a yellow exclamation mark appears. When I use the windows solution utility I get two different messages:

a)either my wireless network connection does not have a valid IP

b) the default gateway is not available

I am using d-link dwa-127 wireless adapter since my computer does not have an integrated wifi card, and I have already removed norton, which could possibly be blocking my conncection. I have tried setting my IP manually, but it does not work.

At the beginning it all functioned normally, and even now it works, but it did not before. I also noticed that when it does not work it says 'Unidentified network', and when it does it says 'Smuc' (the ssid of our network).
The internet as such is working this whole time, I always check it on my laptop with windows XP and an integrated WiFi card.

How could I solve this problem and keep my internet connection stable?

However when I go into device manager and try to update the driver the xbcd does not show up.
Can anyone help??

A:XBOX wireless controller configuration

Do you mean xbox or xbox 360 wireless controller? if you mean 360 why don;t you just use the microsoft provided drivers? If it's not automatically recognized by a game, use XPadder to set up custom control schemes for them.

Every time I start up my computer I need to do the routine Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services, Wireless Zero Configuration and finally click on "Start" in order to get connectivity to Internet. It is set to "Automatic" however every time I start up I need to go thru the same routine again. I'm using a Netgear Router that is connected to the Road Runner Cable modem. This happens with my E-machine desktop computer using Home-XP (new). This situation is fairly recent and I cannot find the explanation nor the way to correct it and evidently there must be a way to fix it. I'll be most grateful if anyone can help me. Thanks,

Hello,

I am hooked up just fine to my home wired network via cable modem. I'm not ready to go wireless at home since I rarely move my laptop and like the setup I have now.

However, I would like to install a wireless PC Card (a Netgear MA521 is what I have handy) so that when I'm on the road I can work from commercial sites such as Atlanta Bread Co., Panea Bread, and Barnes and Noble.

Is it possible to have both a wired and wireless connection configured in my laptop? I wanted to check with you guys before I start trying it for myself because above all I don't want to mess up my wired connection!

I am running Windows 2000 on my laptop, a Linksys cable router BEFSR41, and a cable modem at home with 2 PCs hooked up.

Thanks for your help,

Pamela

After discovering that the software that came with my new Linksys Wireless G Adapter was causing my system to hang, I uninstalled the software and now use the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration Service instead. The hardware works normally, the problem is that after uninstalling the Linksys software, every time I boot my computer, the WZCS is shutdown, and the advanced wireless settings are set not to use WZSC. Despite the fact that it is set under the services menu to 'automatic' on startup, it does not start. With my old network adapter, this never happened, WZCS always started and automatically connected. Once I change the settings, it works fine, but I am concered as to why when I reboot they change back.

Is there anything I can do to fix this. I think that the Linsys software changed something, and still thinks it is the program for wireless networking, and turns off WZSC. I have no idea how to fix it and appreciate your help.

I'm using Windows XP-Home SP3, all other info on my computer is available through my profile on this forum.

Thanks!

There is maybe a setting on the Windows wireless zero thing to be automatic every time you turn on the computer to automatically detect those settings and use it.

I have a Dell Intel Pentium Desktop and a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7; the router is a Netgear RangeMax Wireless-N 150. Until 8/17/11 I was able to make wireless/wired connection with my laptop, I can make connection with desktop with no problem. When I run troubleshooter I'm informed that "Wireless doesn't have a valid ip configuration", or "connection between router access point, router cable, internet modem broken". Connection also defaults to "Unidentified network" instead of my home network. I have reset my laptop, desktop, cable modem, router; device manager informs me that all hardware is working properly also, I updated firmware, and verified the most recent drivers installed. Connection has been setup since July 2010 and I have experienced no problem up until now. If someone could assist me and help to to fix this problem I would really appreciate it

A:Wireless doesn't have valid ip configuration

Welcome to the forum taradenise!

Sorry to hear you are having problems!

It is obvious from this image that you are not connecting to the router at all... the IP showing is an autoconfig IP starting with 169.254.xxx.xxx. So, your issue is probably with the router.

Since all was working fine earlier, I am willing to bet that on or around 8/17/11 you had power outtage, you unplugged, or moved your router. ???

If unplugged for a period of time, many routers will reset to factory defaults.

If you send me the same image from the desktop, along with the model and make of your router, I should be able to help you get this back up easily!

I'm hoping JohnWill or some of you tech literate types are still watching.

I have the exact same problem that caraewilton had, except I have a Linksys WRT54GL (plugged into a Linksys RVS4000)in the "Mainbuilding" and a Buffalo WHR HP AG108 to go in the "Workroom". The AG108 has a bridge switch.

The WRT54GL requires the following under "Internet Setup" ( I have it set for static IP):
Internet IP address???
Gateway address???
Under "Network Setup" I need:
Router IP-->Local IP Address???
DHCP is off

The AG108 requires an IP Address for the "LAN Side IP Address???

I have tried every combination of addresses in the two wireless routers, but I cannot get them to play well together. I would appreciate it if someone could give me a set of address that will let these 3 routers connect per caraewilton's diagram. The tricky part is that all 3 routers have radically different setup pages.

TIA

Hi tech-guys!

Something happened to my Wireless zero configuration service - everytime I turn on my PC, I must start this service manually via Control panel -- Administrative tools -- Services. I tried to change some settings by right-clicking on Wireless zero configuration, then choosing Properties and there under Recovery tab where "Select the computer's response if the service fails" option is located, I chose this: First failure - Restart service, Second failure - Run a program, Subsequent failures - Take no action.

But these settings didn't help at all - again and again I must start this service manually everytime I turn on my laptop. This is laughably strange.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Ok, so I've been beating my head over this one. And not only have I been beating my head but I've wasted several hours on it too.

The company that I work for purchased a few wireless units from Newegg. The model they chose was the TrendNET TEW-639GR model (you can find the user guide here.)

So here is what we are trying to do and what is keeping us from doing it.

These units work great if you just want to plug it in and connect to the internet. We plug a network cable from our master switch into the WAN port and then wireless works fine, or plugging into the LAN ports on the back works fine. However it assigns the default 192.168.10.100-200 range to anything that connects to them. Our company uses the 10.10.0.1 to 10.11.0.255 range. So while the internet works, other network functions do not; like opening a connection to our AS/400 or RDC.

I cannot for the life of me get this to work the way we want. If I tell the wireless unit to use the DHCP range of 10.10.0.80 to 10.10.0.100 it reboots and we cannot get back into the device to manage it and it will not allow anything connected to it to access the network or the internet at all. This, even though it assigns the IP to said devices just fine. It just will not work the way it should.

Perhaps I am missing something? If you guys can help me out I would appreciate it so much.

Please let me know if you need further information.

Thank you for looking at this message.

I'm currently using a Dell Inspiron 1400 and running Windows XP. Whenever I start my laptop, I get three error messages, but I'm not sure if the three are connected to one another (i.e. problems arising from another existing problem). I posted all below in the event that they're directly connected to a networking problem, but I realize that not all three fit into this category, so I apologize for that.

1) "Wireless Configuration
Notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly."

I tried finding solutions to this first because I assumed that my other problems (below) stemmed from it, but I couldn't find anything. At first, I could not connect to my router at all and had no internet connection. However, when I went to the Dell website to (re)download and (re)install some of the recommended drivers, software, and wireless cards, I was able to connect to the internet again, but all of my other problems still persist and I still get the same error message every time I start my laptop. I'm really not sure what I'm supposed to do here and I am very, very reluctant to restore my laptop because I recently did so about a month ago because of a malware problem.​

Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services - scroll to Wireless Zero Configuration and check the Startup Type. It should be 'Automatic' for what you want.

If your wireless adapter's utility is launched at startup (and disables WZC) then stop it (remove it's shortcut icon from the Startup folder or use msconfig).

At work I am trying to figure out how to configure out wireless router. What I need to be able to do is to have people who use wifi to be able to also connect to our office file server (which will have shared printers so we can monitor usage amongst different departments). How can I do this? 90% of the office connects through wires using a static ip. Would I need to configure the router with a static ip as well? If so, would the wifi laptops need to have a static ip as well?
 

A:Wireless router configuration for use with file server

If there is a DHCP server on your office network, the following configuration for the router and allow the connections you seek. You could also use a wireless bridge if you haven't purchased yet.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

Hello,

I faced a strange issue on wireless network configuration after doing a clean install of Windows 8.1.
I succeeded to find a workaround that maybe helpfull for others but I am still interested to read an explanation of this issue.
So as indicated above, I made a clean install of windows 8.1 pro on a brand new PC I built up myself featuring a Gigabyte Wifi/BT PCI-e card (GC-WB300D) . After the install, the wifi connection from my home router was immediately detected and I saw the icon and indication on the bottom right of the screen "network available" then I right click on it and a bar on the left of my screen appeared. I click in the side bar on the network icon I was willing to connect and I was prompted to enter my login and password rather than the wifi security key so of course the connection to my (home) wifi network failed as the security key was never configured for this connection. I opened up the network and sharing center to find a menu item to configure my connection by keying th security key without success. I worked around this issue by creating a new connection using the same SSID of the connection already detected automatically by windows as there is a field in this menu to enter the security key.
Any explanation ?

Hi there,

First time poster here. I've run into an issue with my wireless network settings, and I don't know what to do. When I access the Network Connections section of my Control Panel, I can see my wireless connection, but I am unable to right-click and select "Status". As I understand, that should give me some information about the condition of the connection, but it simply doesn't do anything. Furthermore, the Wireless Connection icon in my system tray has disappeared. I assume there is a connection between those two issues, but I don't know for sure.

This came to bear today when I attempted to install a second wireless adapter (a Netgear Rangemax USB adapter), which failed to access the internet through my router. There may be another issue at play there, but until I'm confident of my computer's internal networking configuration, I'm having trouble placing the blame elsewhere.

My computer is using a D-Link wireless-G network card; I seem to recall tweaking my system a while back to work around a recurring error box, but I can't remember many details there. Maybe that's of some help?

Thanks so much, if anyone out there knows how to fix this, I'd be very grateful.

Some of us don't use just a wireless router, but a combination of wireless and wired routers. In such cases the configuration of the devices can be a little tricky. But this thread it will be explained in depth, each step how to set up a wireless access points for laptops

This tutorial is going to explain how to set-up wireless for people who have setups similar to this model:

Modem -> Wired Router -> Wireless Router

Modem -> Wired Router -> Switch -> Wireless Router

***Note, there are pictures at the bottom of this post, use those for reference when going through this guide***

Supplies:

- Wireless router / power cord
- An ethernet cable to go from the router to the computer we'll be working with
- Oh, a computer with Internet Explorer or Firefox, no chrome yet lol

Step 1: Getting everything ready

- Take the wireless router, plug in the power, and take an ethernet cable from the back of the wireless router ***NOT THE INTERNET / WAN PORT but any port labled [1,2,3,4]*** plug the other end into the computer or laptop

- Now, once the laptop is booted up make sure its connected to the router
WIRED not WIRELESSLY

- Open up Internet Explorer or Firefox
- in the address bar type in the default router IP address which for dlink's is 192.168.0.1 for linksys products its usually 192.168.1.1 and hit enter

Hi,

I have just bought a D-Link DP-G310 wireless print server and am having problems getting it to work the way I want. I want to be able to print wirelessly from my laptop i.e with neither the laptop or the print server connected by cables to my router.

I did not find the instructions that helpful but have managed to configure the print server so that it connects to my wireless network. The problem is that I can only print if the laptop is connected to my router by cable. If I disconnect the cable, the laptop will connect to the router (and the internet) but will not print. I can also only access the print servers config menu via the cable. If I am connected to the router via the cable, I do not have internet access following the tcp/ip configuration changes I made to be able to get to the print server

Do I need to do anything to the wireless tcp/ip configuration to get it to see the printer (not too sure what I am doing in this area!) Will any such changes interfere with internet access?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dave.

First, connecting to someone else's wifi is both illegal and makes you vulnerable to malware.

If it is secured and yours you should know the logon, if you dont it not yours to use.

A:wireless network connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration

The ipconfig looks mostly ok to me although it appears that you have a DNS of 4.2.2.2 typed into the IPv4 settings window, it might be best to remove that entry from IPv4 and then type the DNS servers you want to use into your routers set up page instead, where ever it says DNS servers type in the two you want to use for example Google's DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 .

In the Network and Sharing Center> Manage Wireless Connections, the profile for this connection should be using WPA2 with AES encryption, the same settings should be showing up in your routers set up page. After that please post the ipconfig/all again. If you can check that out first it would be most helpful.
