It's still in the same place (Services), just by a different name. You are looking for the WLAN AutoConfig service, which should be set to Automated and then Started as you would do before. http://www.blackviper.com/WinVista/Services/WLAN_AutoConfig.htm

Thanks for the quick response, tigermatt.
WLAN AutoConfig service is running (Started - Automatic) under services on this brand new Toshiba Satellite.
Wireless is configured, access to Internet or LAN is OK.
But, the stored Wireless connection is dropped on a reboot and has to be re-initiated each time.
Is there a solution to retain the wireless connection settings?

Did you manage to find a solution? From what I can see, there's no reason why Vista should drop the settings at each reboot, unless there is some third-party software managing the connection for you, which would then explain the problem.
