Wireless service Not enabled

Recently i bought a cisco valet.

But i found out that my wireless service is not enabled.

I went to services and wlan auto config was started and automatic

How do you enable it, its stopping me from managing wireless networks.

Did you follow all the instructions on the cisco to set it up?

If so, then the problem would lie with the computer. Can the computer find the network, and can you enter the password to connect? How is it stopping you from managing wireless networks?

I should have asked you this before, but I need your specs on your computer. At the bottom of your post, you will see "My System Specs V" - Click it, and click Update your System Spec". I need all that information. It is a lot easier if your computer was pre-built by a company, such as dell, hp, etc. because the specs are easier to find.

Let me know once you update all the info. Also, you will want to do these tutorials:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - by Brink
Internet Troubleshooting Guide - by Dinesh
*The last one might help your situation, but I doubt it even applies to you. Check it out yourself to determine that.

You will want to make sure network discovery is on: Network Discovery - Turn On or Off in Windows 7 - by Brink

Get back to me with those specs if you can, let me know if you encounter any trouble. After that, we can troubleshoot further...

Sounds like a piece of software is managing your wireless connections! If wlan auto config is already enabled then have a look in the programs list for anything to do with wireless managers and disable it!

I think tez is right on, you probably need to uninstall any software that is managing your network

You might try reinstalling this driver for the wireless functionality: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/...ductCode=False

I haven't installed those programs. Just make sure you haven't changed any services, and if you have, change them back.

Make sure a WIRED connection works. If it does, you might try searching for updates that way. Before you do, turn ON automatic driver installation: Drivers - Turn Off Automatic Driver Installation - after this, install all updates and drivers offered.

Did you follow all the tutorials I gave previously?

Restart your computer

Did you set your computer up to discover networks? Network Discovery - Turn On or Off in Windows 7

Did you look inside the case to 1. make sure you have a wireless network adapter (hardware) installed, and 2. that it isn't loose.

Can you search for a network now? *See below V*

Go to network and sharing center, click "connect to network". If yours isn't listed, perhaps it wasn't set up yet? Click "Set up a new connection or network" and follow the wizard.

Go to the action center and click troubleshoot, also found here:
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Troubleshooting . With the computer plugged in via the WIRED connection (if it works), troubleshoot network and internet problems.
