06 Januari 2010 13:37!!! LOOK, WARNING, WATCH OUT, HEY YOU !!!!
WARNING: Event ID 4001, WLAN AutoConfig service has successfully stopped.
The operative word there being "successfully ", and the stupidity on a Microsoft Developers part being; if it's stopped successfully they why the ____ does it mess up my event log with a warning flag?
I get fed up of this garbage. Isn't this why Vista failed so badly? You'd think Microsoft would learn.
24 Februari 2010 2:57Is there a legitimate reason for this? I keep getting this in event viewer also. Frustrating....looks like there would be a "fix" for it.
10 Mei 2011 15:40Perhaps the reason it is there is this is the error I get just before my system crashes!
24 Agustus 2011 3:17Don't you guys get it? In this day and time, most IT people, engineers, politicians, etc., etc. (and I did say most, not all) forget steps, don't double check what they do, are too interested in what "they want" (and they shove that down our throat, and just don't do what "we" want, and that is provide us with a trouble free system. All of this "social crap" (which is guess does provide the ability to do what I'm doing) is another way for them to eventually make more money buy us buying more crap. They will NEVER admit they made a mistake. They will tell you how to "work around", "adapt", etc, etc. Do i sound frustrated? Yes, I'm sick of this junk. Windows 95 was faster than Windows 7. Granted, Windows 95 never had all the "bells and whistles" that we have now, but what has all of that done for us? Oh well, they probable won't post this. If they do, get ready for Windows 8, Windows 9, Windows 9tt, so on and so forth and be prepared for them to woryy you to death till you buy it. Oh, you will have to because all of this that halfway works now, won't work at all then.

This happens when your wireless network adapter is configured to turn off after a period of inactivity to save power.
It says successful because: It was configured to do so, and it did.
It pops as a warning because: This will result in network dis-connectivity, so if the user does not want it to be this way, he should change the setting.
That's not stupid, that's thoughtful on the Microsoft developer's part for power saving. It's just that we don't see it the way it was meant to be.. :)
Hope it helps!

07 Nopember 2011 20:44Guess what- That doesn't work. I tried it and I still get the warning.
09 Desember 2011 14:09Me too. It doesn't work and still get the warning
06 Januari 2012 7:32I also tried the solution posted above from ServerBaba and it doesn't work for me. I still get the "Event ID 4001, WLAN AutoConfig service has successfully stopped" as a warning in my system event log. If the task completed successfully then why is it considered a "warning" and not "information. Please Microsoft, help us resolve this issue.

I too was receiving this error also, although my setup may be different than the users that have posted here.
I use my Ethernet NIC most of the time and keep my WLAN as a redundant backup in case the wired side drops. I was logging this error whether the adapter was enabled or not, since the service was still active in the Automatic mode.
Upon every boot, I was logging EventId 4001. I was able to keep the WLAN network adapter enabled and eliminate the error by simply switching the WLAN service setting from Automatic to Manual.
If you are using the wireless connection and NOT the Ethernet NIC, I am not sure if this will also work for you (as I have not tried it), but it did solve my error logging issue of the EventId 4001 in my situation, which was annoying me much in the same way as the others here have articulated, since there really is no need for a warning at all IMHO.
I am assuming that upon boot, the wireless service is called to respond ( in the automatic mode), and if there is not active connection, the service then will generate the message when the service is called to stop & listen for another call.
Hope this is of some help to the group, and in either case I am no longer logging the EventId 4001 so it worked for me.
Adminstrative Tools>Services>WLAN Auto Config---> Set to Manual.

29 April 2012 17:30This solution is also a bust. I use wireless exclusively and had the service set to Manual.The warning continues.

Hi server baba. I only tried one thing. I went into services and stopped the Wlan (wireless lan) service and then restarted it.
The stop action left a warning in the event log with id 4001 and the start action left an information entry in the system event log with id 4000.
I think a warning is unnecessary in this case so the problem though minor is real.

Just to complete the diagnosis, I stopped and restarted the workstation service which is also a fairly important network service.
No warning event ids were issued, only information type events. I rest my case. This is indeed a problem

I too have been experience this error. I only use WLAN and I went into the Properties for the service and discovered after it fails twice it doesn't restart. This meant I lost connectivity to Network.
The connectivity returns after a reboot and when it fails/stops twice, it won't restart.
The reset count default is zero - > now 2
After subsequent failures, is now "Restart The Service"
Applied changes Clicked "OK" and waiting to see if the Network lockout s overcome.
