    Sorry, I am 2 days late for this to matter

    I wish I had seen this sooner.

    I am not sure if this is the cause of the problem you had, but I have seen it in other cases and the results were the same.

    Basically, for some reason (a virus, etc.), something has disabled the NDIS service from starting.

    However, you cannot see this protocol service listed in the enumeration of services in control panel.

    What you have to do is go into the registry and navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ndisuio

    In this key there is an entry named Start and its value must be 3 in order for the NDIS Usermode I/O Protocol to start properly.

    A virus such as Bagle will change this entry to 4 (disabled) and cause the exact problem you were experiencing.

    Sorry I couldn't help you, but maybe someone in the future will come across this forum having the same problem.

    The last idea i can think of is if you go into ProSet, under the advanced menu select "Use windows to manage Wi-Fi", perhaps something with ProSet has turned off or blocked the service in some way and it needs to be re-enabled through ProSet.

    If anyone else has experienced a similar problem and has any insight it would be welcome.

    Something else you can check, if you open the services, go to the Wireless Zero Configuration properties and click on the Log On tab. This has a list of hardware profiles the service can be enabled / disabled for, please make sure it is enabled for the various profiles, having it disabled will produce the same error message you are getting.

    There is a walk through for a similar problem when trying to enable internet connection sharing and getting the same error, http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;827328. You could try following these steps and ensure the Wireless Zero Configuration and Remote Procedure Call options are checked.

    Can you temporarily uninstall the Intel PRO Set software software and reboot. At least to see if this is the problem.

    Ndis

    Netstubmler seems to work with either card, in the setup for it is seeems to use the NDIS driver & is able to function, How do I remove & reinstall NDIS so that I can use your software. I am using Intel PRO Set software for managing the connections, could this be part of the problem ?

    If so other than removing the software, how can this be resolved ?

    The Wireless Zero Configuation (WZC) service is part of the Windows O/S and not part of our software. But our software does make use of the same underlying NDIS device driver.

    On a normal Window XP install you can stop and start this service at will. You should not get any errors when you try to start it. So there is something not right about your system, or some other software is blocking the normal operation of this service.

    WZC depends on two other operating system functions.
    1) The NDIS Usermode I/O protocol and the 2) the RPC remote procedure call (RPC) service. The problem is most likely with the NDIS driver (Ndisuio.sys). But as to exactly what the problem is with your system I don't know.

    Preferred Card

    I would like the software to use the IBM/Orinoco Card as it has external antenna capabilities

    Wireless tools running

    Currently running is Intel ProSet version 7.1.4.7

    Windows Zero wireless service can be stopped & started without errors
