  Wireless network tab missing in VISTA 
 Date Written

Hello all,

Weird problem. I hooked up a linksys device to one of my laptop to change settings on it. Now that I have unhooked it. For some reason, there is no longer a network tab under the properties of my wireless card! I have enabled the wired and wlan config in services but it still will not come back! I'm trying to configure a wireless connection with the internal wireless card like I normally do. The tab is just no longer there! I have no idea why and I'm lost.

Any ideas? Remember this is Vista there is no wireless zero configuration just the wired and wlan config.

WLAN AutoConfig does the job of managing wireless connections in Vista. Is it running?

Ha as it said in my post. I already checked that.

Silly question but is it showing up OK in Device Manager?

I'd remove it from device manager, reboot, and check if it "resets" itself on the boot.

Have you turned the wireless on (function switch or hardware switch depending on the notebook)?

Only read the manual as a last resort.
