Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If your laptop has integrated WiFi, remove any USB wireless card.

Ensure WiFi is switched on.

Allow Windows to set up your WiFi instead of a vendor-provide application.

See to enable services WZC in Control panel-Administrator Tools-Services and locate Wireless Zero Configuration. Manually start the services if disabled

    This I know is due to Wireless software conflicting between Windows Wireless management and the Default Wireless configuration that comes with Wireless Driver. Completely un install the Wireless Driver and reinstall it again... BUT this time install Drivers ONLY allowing windows to mange your wireless...

    Hi, Are you using a built in wifi or a wifi usb ? Just follow these steps: right click on wireless connection icon on the right bottom side of the taskbar. click on status -----> Click on Wireless Network tab ----> click on the "use windows to configure my wireless connection". This will enable your windows to configure wireless service. If you don't find the "Wireless Network" tab in the Wireless Network connection,then you have to enable to wireless zero configuration. Click on start ---->control panel----> Admin tools. In Admin tools just turn on "wireless zero configuration". Than click on "Apply" and click on "OK".
