    Doc:

    I'm sorry... I REALLY got to take that typing class ... it's WZC -- Wireless Zero Configuration -- and it has something to do with how XP handles wireless.

    Trouble is, I can't seem to get "it" set right so that my wireless would stop disconnecting!

    Here I am again Doc, just enough know-how to cause myself trouble. I just spent $200+ on an "extra strength" router and USB wireless (Netgear) so that I could :

    1) Stop having these disconnect issues;
    2) Not have to take my machine aprt every time I need to remove the card.

    And so far, all for naught.

    Chuck

    WZC Service (WinXP SP-2 Pro)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Leif on 05-Apr-07 07:30. - to correct typo in subject line for future reference.)</P>It's something new every time!

    What the heck is WZO do, and why haven't I come across it or problems associated with it before?

    I thought earlier today that I had turned it on, but the it went "off" again...

    Should this service stay on once it is turned on and set to Automatic?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Re: WZC Service (WinXP SP-2 Pro)

    Doc/Joe:

    As is typical, as I stumbled around fro the fix, I learned of the pieces:

    I have a NETGEAR router and wireless, both of which come with their own software. If I use their software, and resultingly control the configs etc. with such, I do not need WZC.

    If however, I want to have WinXP control things, then I do need the WZC service. Without WZC running, the Available Wireless Networks do0n't show up.

    So, it's a choice per system.

    Thanks, you guys got me back on track.

    Regards,
    Chuck
