Is XP SP3 a requirement for 802.1x wired authentication?
When I look at the network adaptor properties I do not have a "authentication" tab.
If not, what is required to have the authentication tab become visable?

The 802.1x authentication is for both wireless and
wired connections.


1. Open the Network Connections folder.
2. Right-click the Local Area Network, and then choose Properties.
3. Click the Authentication tab.


The Authentication tab only appears when the Wireless Zero Configuration service is started even though you are using a wired connection. Make sure the service is running. If it doesn't appear in the list then follow these instructions.

Click start>run and type in services.msc and hit enter
scroll down to Wireless configuration Service
If it says that it is running, there is another issue. If it is stopped, then double-click on the service to get to it's properties. Click on "start" to start the service. Set the "Startup type" to automatic.

If the service is not listed, then it must be added to the registry:

 run regedit and find

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WZCSVC

Select Edit>New>DWORD Value

String Name: Start
Value: 2 (hexadecimal)

BTW... make sure when you navigate to the registry key that you click on WZCSVC so that you enter the DWORD in the right place.
