View Full Version : Another program is controlling Wireless

09-23-2009, 03:11 PM
If one spends any amount of time in the tech industry soon he'll see the "Another program is controlling Wireless..." And usually its an easy repair simiply find the the thirdparty program that has overpowered the NIC; however I have already spent too much time running down the program that is controlling the NIC, and am hoping that someone knows a hack to force windows to control the NIC.

Any ideas?

This doesn't seem like a business or legal issue to me....

I would need to agree. My bad.

Moved to the networking section.

Doesn't starting the Windows Zero Config service put Windows in charge? (question mark because I don't remember for sure, but I believe it does)

IIRC, you get a message that another app is controlling wireless and to disable it first. Check in Startup and it may point to the 3rd party wireless control app, which you should then just uninstall.

Why did you start this thread twice?
