Why won't Wireless Zero Config start?

I have a wireless network, XP SP2 Home edition, D-Link router and adapter.

Recently (after a ram upgrade) I have been having serious problem detecting the network on startup; I narrowed it down to the fact that the Wireless Zero Config service was not automatically starting when windows boots up. It had been previously.

Any ideas how to get this to start automatically? Setup type is set to Automatic, and I'm the only user on the network so logon is set to Local User Account.

Right now I have to manually enable it each time I boot up, and its driving me nuts.

There are a couple of things in this previous thread that you can try.

Best answer: As a temporary fix, create a .bat file in your startup folder, and put in it:

net start WZCSVC

Response by poster: SirStan, perfect answer - works fine, thank you.

I couldn't find that previous thread for some reason.
