Wired autoconfig service missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a problem with Wired autoconfig service - it is not present in the list when i run services.msc.

    When I try to run it from command line i get a reply about invalid service.

    I found that dot3svc.dll file is in the Windows\system32 folder.

    The OS is Windows XP with SP3.

    Any ideas?

  • Sorry for not answering,

    I came back to this issue just a weeke ago.

    All you have to do is to copy the registry entry hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\dot3svc from a computer that works to the one that doesn't have the service listed.

    I looked at registry entries for both computers before but there was no difference as far as I could see.

    Nevertheless copying solves the matter.

    It works for Windows XP - didn;t check for Windows 7.

    Regards

  • Replacing the registry key worked for me on a Windows 10 machine where the service disappeared and the client couldn't connect through 802.1x authentication.
