  • Hi boboc1, after checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows XP related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows SteadyState specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows XP forum:

    1.       Click Start, go to Run, type services.msc and press Enter.

    2.       Locate Wireless Zero Configuration on the right pane.

    3.       Start the service and set the start type to automatic.

    4.       Then, please check the result.

     

    Hope this helps!
