Windows 7: Network Service List does not turn on

Network Service List does not turn on

Hello everyone

When I click on "Network and Internet" option in Control Panel, I don't see the network I am connected to. (i.e. The computer icon, then the network icon and the Internet with the world icon.)

All I can see is "unknown" and below that in blue letters more info. When I click on "more info" the following message pops out:

"Do you want to turn on Network List Service?"

and the message is followed by information on what this service does.

When I click "turn on" nothing happens but the Internet works fine.

I googled that and found only one solution but that didn't work for me.

This is the solution I tried with no luck: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-networking/network-list-service-will-not-turn-on/fbbda2cc-1609-4628-a21b-b77c180c148b

Can somebody please help me? Any suggestions please?

Many thanks

Hi goude, welcome to 7F

When it is asking you:
Quote:
"Do you want to turn on Network List Service?"
It is referring to the Service in Services Follow the tutorial, and find the Network List Service.

Mine is set to Started - Manual, the tutorial will show you how to change it if yours is different.

There seems to be a problem with your link, my FF can not find the location.

Hi

The link below should now work I hope.

Network List Service will not turn on - Microsoft Answers

My "Network Service List" service was set to manual and I changed that to automatic but it didn't make any difference. I have changed it back to manual now and restarted the service but the problem persists.

Since you know how to arrive at the Network Service List entry (NSL), and change its properties, did you check the Dependencies for it under the Dependencies Tab?

You will have to manually check all of them.
The preferred settings can be found here: Black Viperís Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations | Black Viper's Website | www.blackviper.com

Have you tried tomchen 1989's solution at the bottom of your link?
You may have to do this with all the services involved.

The dcomcnfg service is listed as a dependency of the NSL.

No I didn't check any NSL dependencies, I just followed the instructions of that link.

Yes I tried tomchen 1989's solution with no luck but I haven't tried it with all the other services.

I will do that and post back.

Hi Anak

I checked all the dependecies of NSL and I matched their settings according to the ones in your link.
Restarted the computer but nothing happened.

I am trying to apply tomchen 1989's solution to all NSL dependencies but I can not find them in "DCOM Config".
For example, service NlaSvc with display name: "Network Location Awareness" is not in DCOM Config folder.
The same RpcSs (Remote Procedure Call).

Should they be in "DCOM Config"? Where can I find them?

Thank you

In C:\Windows\System32 .
Scroll down below the Folders in System32, they are listed there in alphabetical order.

Hi

I just realised that my laptop is 64bit, so I looked inside the SysWOW64 directory but I can not see the NSL dependant services in there. What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks
