Windows cannot start the WLAN Autoconfig service on local computer

*I am unable to connect to the Internet on wireless home network.
I have carried out the following:

'Click Start, type services.msc, then press Enter.
Scroll down to "WLAN AutoConfig" and right click on it and select Properties. Set it to Automatic and not Disabled, and press the Start button, then click OK.
That should start the service.'

I received the following message:

"Windows could not start Wired AutoConfig Service on local computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

Please help. I am not able to start Internet as a result cannot do any thing.
