Checking permissions is a waste of time.
If you have no permission you will never connect.
If you do have permission it connects.
It's that simple.

This problem is a network problem.

You could check if some vital network sevices are set to manual instead of automatic.

You can find services under administrative tools in the control panel.

When you have succesfuly connected, go and see which network related services are started, but are on manual.

Set those to automatic.

Restart and see what happens.

Good luck

omg you were right, believe it or not, there is a SERVICE called "Network List Service" and it does exactly what is related to my problem, stores connected to networks =O

It was set to manual, and so I stopped it and set to automatic.

However, when trying to start it again after, I get ERROR 5: ACCESS DENIED, what the heck.

So I went into the user account that it is started under, and it's started under a user called Local Service. I changed that to the box saying local system account..

now when trying to start it, i get an error 1079 the account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process =O

I know homegroup processor is one, but what are the other services relying on it and what services rely on homegroup processor etc ?

Don't try to start it.

When set to automatic, just reboot, it will start automatically.

Oh, and set that box back to local service, or it won't start.

don't start changing random permissions without knowing what you're doing.

you'll get into a mess without anybody being able to help you.

Hello ClericX

To summarize, you can connect to the network wirelessly but cannot save the information.


The details of the networks are stored in the registry at this location ....

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList

You may want to check that the administrators group has permissions for this branch

Strangely enough you may want to try setting you UAC to a higher level temporarily so that the auto elevation prompts when editing (saving), the information.

another tip for good trouble shooting.

change one thing at a time and reboot.

It takes longer, but at least you will know when you found the right one.


And again, don't change system permissions. It will screw up your OS.

I think you have done it, I checked this registry key, and under it there is another registry key called Permissions and in this key, there is no data except default, which I suppose means no users have permissions to modify this data!

If you could tell me how to go about adding the administrators group to this permissions key I would be very grateful.

Yeah, I changed the user account it starts as back to Local Service, and I left it to start as Automatic, which means it should start when I restart, which I will probably do once I get an answer to my above question.

I would appreciate it if you try following advises, not only acknowledge them.

Please reboot. Your problem might already be solved with it.

You are making this more complicated than it has to be.

Sorry if I sound impatient, but it's hard enough trying to help without seeing what you're doing.

I dont think default is incorrect. My working sys also has default only. It may be in one of the other keys but you are just going to get yourself in wdeper if you start messing with them
