  • I have the same problem. the wireless Windows Zero Configuration is enabled and running, however the "Wireless Networks" tab is missing from the wireless network connection properties window. Any ideas on how to restore this tab? The radio works, and shows a TX/RX connection, but the router will not assign an IP address.

  • I had the same problem - reinstalled windows, updated it with service pack 3 and wireless tab was not visible. I couldn't view any wireless networks. WZC was started and running. Tried several suggestions on different threads but none seemed to help.
    This finally helped:
    Click on 'View available networks' and then 'Change advanced settings'.
    Under 'Wireless Network Connection Properties', click on 'Advanced' tab.
    At the bottom of the advanced window I had a link to setup network connections (I am not able to find it now - so don't know the exact name) and clicked on it. It led me through a series of steps where I clicked next/ok. Finally, after finishing it, the wireless networks tab appeared.

  • Some wireless network adapters come with a wireless utility program for managing wireless connections, and that program disables Windows' built-in wireless networking configuration tab.  Look for a ThinkPad utility like that, and see if it has an option to let Windows configure the wireless connection.

  • Win XP OS can be refreshed without losing Data and application.
    May be you should consider trying it.
    Refresh XP Installation.
    Boot from the XP original CD. Skip the first screen that offers Console Repair, and continue as though you install a New XP.
    After you Agree etc., the new install screen will come on and would detect the current XP installation.
    Choose the Repair option by Pressing R for Repair.
    Use it, would take about 45Min. and you will have a Refreshed Installation of XP while keeping all your data and XP configuration.
    P.S. If you made changes to WinXP Security setting (Like Firewall special permission), you have to look over them after the refresh since they might revert to the Default.
