Hey All, I have a two month old, custom built desktop running Windows 7 and last Friday, without any seeming provocation, my wireless network disappeared. My computer is completely unable to see any wireless networks. My router is working fine (I'm using it to post this from another computer), and my wireless adapter works perfectly (again, using it to post this). When I ask Windows to diagnose the problem, it tells me that the Windows wireless service is not running. After much research and several sfc scans, I can safely say that it appears to be a registry issue. System restores, both by Windows and from backups have failed to correct the errors. I've seen several possible solutions like: Run CMD as Admin... netsh winsock reset catalog netsh int ipv4 reset "c:\reset.log" netsh int ipv6 reset "c:\reset.log" and Windows wireless service is not running on this computer - Microsoft Answers and Go into the registry with regedit for this: Open the Registry Editor Expand: HKEY Local Machine > System > CurrentControlSet > Services > Ndisuio In this key there is an entry called "START". This entry must be set to 3 for the NDIS E/S protocol to boot properly. A virus as Beagle/ Bagle will change this value to 4 and causes the problem. with no joy. Has anybody found another solution to this problem that doesn't involve a clean install? Thanks for the help.
