Note to Future Wi-Fi Enthusiasts

If you can’t get Wireless Zero Configuration to work in Windows XP, try this:

  1. In Control Panel, double-click on Administrative Tools, then on Services.
  2. Double-click on Wireless Zero Configuration in the list.
  3. Set the Startup Type list box to Automatic, then click Start.

If I had been able to find this little tidbit on Proxim’s* web site rather than Linksys’ (see KB10934395), I may have bought an ORiNOCO Gold instead.

In Proxim’s defense, I couldn’t find the answer at Microsoft either.
