This questions appears many times when I search your site. I paid the $10 to get the answer and there are only links to other sites, like Microsoft and these only deal with printer problems.
The error appears running the network connection wizard. How is it fixed?
Or this is a rip off for my $10>????

Ok, the more info you give, the better we can try and help
Did you turn of QoS packet scheduling?
what kind of printer(s) do you have attached to the box? (some third party drivers can cause this issue)
Do you get an error if you manually configure the network?

An HP 700 series printer is attached. We have deleted and uninstalled the printer and get the same message.
We have not turned off QoS uet.
We get the same message manually configuring the printer.
