Default WLAN AutoConfig


I'm currently running Windows Server 2008 on an HP Pavillion s3421p. Unfortunately, Windows did not recognize the wireless adapter that came with the computer. After a pain-stacking search I found the adapter, which is a "Lite-On USB Wireless 802.11 b/g Network Adapter" (generic I guess). After reading a few forums I found that Ralink provided the proper drivers. When I tried to install the driver, it prompted me with "Please install MicroSoft Windows WLAN AutoConfig service manually before installing the Ralink driver". Unfortuantely, Windows Server 2008 does not have the WLAN AutoConfig service...

So, what I'm trying to ask is, how do I literally "install" "WLAN Autoconfig Service" on Windows Server 2008, because it is not present in my services list.

Thanks in advance

Default Re: WLAN AutoConfig

I'm guessing that you have already searched and found this, but I hate to see a help request just sit there without any reply so here is my two cents.

Maybe this link will help you:
