The Wireless Network Setup Wizard and the View Available Wireless Networks feature both rely on the Wireless Zero Configuration service to provide their functionality to Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Windows XP Table PC Edition 2005. If the Wireless Zero Configuration service is not available, you receive an error message that directs you to this article.
This behavior occurs for several reasons. Some computer and hardware manufacturers provide their own configuration software that replaces the Wireless Zero Configuration service that is provided in Windows. In that case, you must use the software that is provided by the manufacturer to configure your wireless network. If you want to use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard or the View Available Wireless Networks feature to configure your wireless device, see the documentation that came with your computer or with your wireless network card. Use this documentation to determine whether you can use the Wireless Zero Configuration service to configure your wireless network. Sometimes, you cannot use the Windows functionality.
If your computer or your wireless network adapter did not come with its own wireless network software, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
Click Network Connections.
In Network Connections, click to select your wireless connection, and then clickChange settings of this connection.
On the Wireless Networks tab, click to select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.
To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.
If you receive an error message when you try to start the service, see the "References" section for more troubleshooting information.For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

when you try to connect to the wireless network, you are getting the message " windows can not configure the wireless network" or windows is not managing. What is the Operatig system on the computer ? If it is windows XP then you can switch over to windows utility. for this you will need to start the wireless zero configuration. If it is WINDOWS VISTA / 7, then windows will manage the network. Click here for more information about routers and wireless network.
if you're using windows XP then you need to start the Wireless Zero Configuration. just click on the start button and choose run then type in services.msc in the run box and click on ok. in the services window just look for Wireless Zero Configuration, it's at the bottom part of the list. just double click it and under the General tab you'll see a box for the Start up type, just set it to Automatic and then on the Service status click Start and then Ok button. once you finish this, you will be able to see the Wireless network tab to be able to select the "use windows to configure my network". in case you're using vista, that option is actually not available as it automatically starts the windows wireless manager and only conflicts if there is a third party software/ wireless manager installed in your computer.
uninstall the wireless driver and then reinstall it again and then install the vga driver and do the wireless configuration from the router page,and then try and install the wireless driver of xp and also install the vga driver of xp.......good luck.....
pls rate this solution
What operating system you had and whether you got a windows based system like xp or vista you have a restore option in your system tool sun the restore and get back to a previous days which everything works fine but in your case i hope you have to check from the wireless switch and the device driver for the wireless card, if status for both are ok check for wireless zero configuration service running under administrator tools /services
When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.
