Recreating corrupted wireless network profile in Vista

by on Sep.03, 2010, under Windows

If Windows Vista prompts you to enter the Wirless password everytime after reboot even after you save the password, you might want to know something is wired with Windows Wireless Management.  Wireless Management is not saving your passwords and matter of fact not even the profile. You can verify it by going to Network and Sharing > Manage Wireless Networks option.

This means your Wireless profile setting is corrupt and it is better to recreate so that Windows Vista starts saving the wireless profile and password. Follow below steps to recreate the profiles.

  1. Goto Windows Services and Stop WLAN AutoConfig service.
  2. In regedit find the following key and delete all the sub keys under it.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWlansvc
  3. Now go back to Windows services and restore the WLAN AutoConfig service
  4. Add the wireless profiles again and save the password. The wireless profiles will start appearing in your Manage Wireless window.

Hope this has helped your resolve the issue. If you have any questions please let me know.
