    Computer won't detect wireless networks.

    Ever since last Wednesday, my laptop hasn't been able to detect wireless
    networks. When I click on "view available wireless networks" it tells me that
    it can't configure the wireless connection, and to run "Windows Zero
    Configuration". When I am trying to activate the WZC service it fails and I'm
    prompted with an error message #1068.

    The wireless card is an "Atheros AR928x Wireless Network Adaptor and the OS
    is Windows XP SP3. The laptop is only 2 months old.

    Make sure the wireless switch in on. Many laptop has a switch or button to
    turn on/off the wireless. Check that first.

    Hi..

    if the wireless switch is on....and then also if it is not detecting any
    network, you should follow the follow the following steps.
    There Wireless zero configuration service runs with the help of other
    dependency services and if anyone of the dependent service is off then also u
    can face same issue..
    So try the following article, cheers...!!
