I tried assigning manaully and that did not work.
The little 'CONNECT" button just grays out after entering the code... and then when you click REPAIR
the dialog box goes thru enable/disable/ then says connecting to wireless network for about a minute then sayus
wndows can not repair the problem because the following action could not be completed.. can not connect to wireless network
now I did try going thru the network wizard.. and it says
: The wizard found disconnected network hardware:
and it lists my Wireless connection HP WLAN

have you tried connecting to any other wireless network? its most likely the setting on your wireless adapter. have you downloaded any microsoft updates recently to do with your wireless adapter?

I would definately upgrade the NIC driver first and foremost....

There are 3 main .dll's for the Wireless service....

wzcdlg.dll
wzcsapi.dll
wzcsvc.dll

Make sure they are present, in c:\Windows\system32

Fors each one of them....

start>run>cmd

regsvr32 <.dllname>

Additionally, you can reinstall it by going to c:\windows\inf, and highlighting wzcsvc.inf, and rt clcking>Install.
