Out of nowhere, my wireless adapter won't search for my router. It says "Windows cannot configure this wireless connection. If you have enabled another program to manage this wireless connection, use that software. If you want Windows to configure this wireless connection, start the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) service." when I open the Wireless Network Connection taskbar icon. Except I don't have a third-party WLAN manager and the WZC won't start. I get an error "Could not start the Wireless Zero Configuration service on Local Computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start." On top of all this, the "Wireless Networks" tab has disappeared from the Wireless Network Connection Properties window. I'm at a loss. Can someone help me shed some light on a solution?

This means that there is another program, other than Windows, managing you wirelesss connection. (Or at least in theory.) What you are going to need to do is un-install and re-install the wireless card's drivers and managment software and then you can tell Windows to take it back over. In order to do that you are going to have to go into the Wireless settings of your device using the software that it has installed, and look around the console for somthing called Microsoft Client, you will want to enable this. That will allow Windows to manage your wireless settings. What type of card are you using? Brand? Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

Regards,
Mike

Hi,

Today I became aware that my computer also had this problem (HP dv100 with Intel (R) Pro/Wireless Adapter), so I did an extensive search on the internet to get it to work (including this post).

As you mention it, if you try to start the WZCSVC service in the MMC, an error code appears referring to its parent services appears (1068, this parent services are Remote Procedure Call and something called NDIS Protocol [I have no idea what this is... ¬¬]). So, if you check the RPC service, it must be enabled (system essential), but you cannot find the other "service".

I have also seen answers referring to disabling any 3rd Party Wireless Management Software (but I don't have one, so it cannot be that).

However, I did find such Protocol Service in the regedit, and I found out it was disabled (it was set to 4). So, in sum, I recommend you to go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndisuio
and check that the "Start" Value is set to 1, 2 or 3 (I set it to 1).

And this solved my problem, after a System Restart the Wireless Zero Config Service can be readily started.

Note: today I found a couple of Win32 Trojan and Worms and a fake service called DirectX.exe, located on the System Directory and considered as a Blaxe and LogPole Virus o_O (I already got rid of it). Maybe they had something to do with this problem.

I hope this works for you, and if it does, there are many posts on other forums related to this, maybe you can spread the info.

All hail JAP1st!!! Thank you SO much! I've been searching the web for hours trying to figure out why my WZC service would not start. I think I am going to go post links to this thread in a bunch of other threads on this subject. :)

Thanks again,
Bill

Thank you so much JAP1st. That was exactly the problem I had. My issue is solved whereas the HP support could not find despite my detailed explanations and that I suspected a problem with these services.
Before that I got a Trojan which removed the antivirus, don't know if this is related to the problem. Anyhow trojan is gone and wlan running :).

I need some help please, is there any way I can access those settings?

I have exactly the same problem as you all did, I disabled my wireless radio and when I switched back on it wouldn't work, I uninstalled and installed the wireless adaptor and the problem is still there. When I tried the WZC intead it also gave me that errod message and wont let me start it.

I am desperate!!!

Help please.

hey tiber_septim..... dont worry, i was facing the exactly same problem what u r facing....

solution to your problem:- go to control panel and click add/remove software..... then remove the software driver for your wireless network adaptor.... then simply restart your desktop/laptop.... on restart your wireless network adaptor will be detected automatically and will be installed automatically.... and now the problem is solved....try it, it helped me.... if it helps you, plz share it with others also....

To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
4. In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.


don't forget there is a space after .msc

Thanks very much, I've gotten that far before and when I in the last step (start) after clicking ok, I get yet another error message.

"Could not start the Wireless Zero Configuration service on local computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start"


Thanks,
