Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b

2 Answers

My WZC (windows zero configuration) keeps getting turned off

I think it's because the stupid Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b continues to startup and at the same time stop the windows service. This has the effect of making the wireless networks invisible, with the message "Windows cannot configure this network..." I can't seem to find a place to turn off the Intel software, even though I've uninstalled all Intel programs. help!

This problem is a frequent problem. There are several solutions that can be done. I would recommend going into wireless network connections, right clicking on it and select repair. This can sometimes fix it. You can also try changing the compatibility mode with which it runs in. Sometimes you can go to the intel website and get an older version of the software, and keep trying them until they fit. It seems you have to keep trying things till it works.
