Re: Every time i restart my pc computer the wireless...
First go to start then run then type in services.msc
Look for wireless zero configuration. Change the startup type to automatic. Then click ok all the way out then restart the computer.
After that just connect once and it will be saved on the computer.
ALthough based on your question i can see that you know how to access the services window. What Id like to know is if you change teh startup type to AUTOMATIC and it still reverts to manual?

You have to do a few steps to check the problem : 1.Check if the wireless switch is on, on your laptop. 2. If it is on then check if the network adaptors are installed or not. You can check that by going into device manager ( start - run - devmgmt.msc). If it is not installed you will find a exclamation mark or simply go to your manufacturers website and update your wireless driver. 3.Then go to Start\Connect To\Show All Network Connections (or, if this doesn't show up on your computer, Start\Control Panel\Network And Internet Connections\Network Connections). For your wireless card, remove it from the bridge (right click on the wireless network and enable it if it is disabled and then if you have a option remove it from bridge click on that.) 4.Restart your wireless zero configration. Go to control panel/Administrative tools/Services, right-clicking on the "Wireless Zero Configuration", and telling it to stop. After it stops, right-click on it again, and tell it to start, and then wait a minute or so and see what happens. then try to connect and see if you can for this go to the network and sharing center search for all the wireless networks and try to connect. I think this should do it for you. If not reply with the message or error you get.
You will need a a couple of things to set up a wireless connection.
First you will need a wireless card which can be either a pci (you have to insert it inside the pc) card or a usb wireless adapter.
Then you will need a wireless router. You will connect your modem to the router which will communicate with your wireless card.
You may need to start windows wireless service ( I say may depending on your wireless card your card may come with software to manage your connection or you may not like the software whatever the case maybe you can always use windows to manage your wireless connection) in XP open control panel click administrator tools and open services then scroll all the way down to Wireless Zero Configuration open it and set startup type to automatic and then start the device click apply and close. This should be the only time you have to manually start this service now that you have set the startup to automatic.
While you are in control panel open Network Connections find your wireless card and right click then click properties you will see two boxes on the bottom select both of them then click ok. That will create an icon on the toolbar for your wireless connection to access it right click for options.
another program is using the wireless utility, you may find this program in start menu / programs / ... open this program and you will be able to connect to your WLAN - also check your tool bar near the clock - an icon for the WLAN may be there,
if you would like windows manage your wireless you may need to enable the wireless zero configuration service within admin tools / services
