Stopping the windows wireless service?
I have a lenovo laptop with vista business installed. I want to use the
thinkvantage access connections 4 which is designed for windows vista and I
have used this software previously.
The problem is that the thinkvantage software keeps telling me that
currently windows wireless service is controlling the wireless networks and I
dont want it to. I have tried stopping the WLan autoconfig in the services
menu but this switches off the radio totally and it wont switch back on.

In vista I used to be able to uncheck a box which then stopped windows
trying to connect to the wireless networks.

How do I stop the windows software?

Hi
Its name is Windows Wireless Zero Configuration.
http://www.ezlan.net/wzc.html
This is a Screen Shot in the page is from WinXP in Vista it is called "WLAN
AutoConfig"
Stop the service, and set it to Start Disabled.
