Q: wlan autoconfig Error 1067

I am running windows 7 and wireless fails to start. wlan autoconfig service is giving error 1067 -The process terminated unexpectedly. Wireless was working before on this laptop. any ideas to fix this? Thanks, tsn

Preferred Solution: wlan autoconfig Error 1067

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

WLAN AutoConfig service gives error 1067 when trying to start it.

What I've tried:

Reset winsock settings
Ran SFC /scannow
Did system restore
Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers

I tried all of these in normal mode AND in safe mode. None of it worked.

Then i thought the service dll (C:\Windows\system32\wlansvc.dll) itself might have been damaged/outdated, so I decided to delete it and put a new one from donor pc. NOPE.
It wouldn't give me access to the file. No matter what i tried, safe mode, unlocker tools, auto rename it on startup, doing everything in administrator or even messing with permissions under file properties. It just wouldn't give me access to the file.

Wi-Fi was working smoothly few days ago and i literally have no idea why it stopped working.

Hi all,
My laptop was workking all fine before. Actually I use my Desktop PC all the time, so I use my laptop just when I need a different operating system or when I go away from home.

So, I tried to search for wireless networks, but didn't come up with any results. Then I clicked "diagnose why windows cannot find any additional networks" it says "windows wireless service is not running on this computer". I click "start windows wireless service" and after about 1-2 seconds it says "windows cannot resolve this problem". I tried going to control panel > administrative tools > services and I try to start the Wlan service I get this:


What may be the problem and solution? thanx!

A:Could Not Start WLAN AutoConfig (Error 2)

Read other 14 answers

Hi all,
I have a problem with wlan autoconfig service. If this service is enabled, then during start up computer just goes through infinite cycles of windows opening and then blue screen appearing saying windows was not shut down properly. This stops when I go to safe mode.
On the other hand, if I disable wlan autoconfig service everything works normal except, of course, the internet. I believe this is a result of some infected software that I managed to remove but I cannot run malware as I cannot connect internet. Also this infected software (that was supposed to be antivirus software) removed my original antivirus so I am helpless.
Please let me know if anyone has some suggestion.
Thanks in advance.

A:WLAN autoconfig is creating error

If you are not using wireless connection you can disable the WLAN AutoConfig  service which provides the logic required to configure, discover, connect to and disconnect from a wireless local area network (WLAN) as defined by IEEE 802.11 standards. It also contains the logic to turn your computer into a software access point so that other devices or computers can connect to your computer wirelessly using a WLAN adapter that can support this. Stopping or disabling the WLANSVC service will make all WLAN adapters on your computer inaccessible from the Windows networking UI. It is strongly recommended that you have the WLANSVC service running if your computer has a WLAN adapter. Your issue i'm sure not with WLAN AutoConfig  service its wireless card causing the issue install latest version of the wireless card driver.

When I logged on I used to get a message to say WLAN was on, it doesn't appear anymore.

In the event viewer I get warning signs to say 'WLAN extenstibility module has stopped'.

If I go to services it says 'WLAN Autoconfig' is started - set to automatic.

I have tried a couple of other things but for the life of me I just can't remember what they are!

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice, please?

Two days ago I started having problems with my Intel Wireless AC 7260. Suddenly the internetconnection would dissapear but it was still conected to the router (asus rt-ac87u). I rebooted my laptop (msi gs70 stealth pro 2pe) and after that he couldn't even find my wireless card.

I tried updating the driver (the new driver on intel's site as well as the old win8.1 driver on msi's site). Nothing helped.
I used a restorepoint and after that it worked for a while but it disconnected again.
I seached through the event viewer and found this error

A:WLAN Autoconfig error 4003

Try removing all the current drivers for both the Intel Bluetooth and the Intel Wireless AC ... in your Device Manager screenshot, it looks like the Bluetooth is waiting for a driver install. The Bluetooth & AC are on the same little card. You'll probably want the latest Windows 10 compatible version -- the download usually holds the drivers for both. You might have to look in on "Programs & Features" in Control Panel to remove the Intel Wireless drivers & software, if they are currently missing from Device Manager.

You can also check to see if your MSI PC has an overly zealous power-saving utility. Windows 10's default settings aren't that Draconian that the wireless is powered down much. But some manufacturer's have handy-dandy power saving utilities ... these can cause trouble, especially if they weren't designed for Windows 10. If you have such a utility running on your PC, dive into its help files a bit, and see if it effects wireless power settings. Windows 10's power settings are easy to find: right-click the Start menu icon & select Power Options.... to get down to particular device settings, you have to dig into the advanced settings.

Let us know if this doesn't help

P.S. .... late edit: tell you what: also look in on your UEFI/Bios settings, to make sure that the wireless and Bluetooth settings look OK in there.

I have an Acer Aspire 5437z laptop running Windows 7 Home. I've had the computer for over a year and have not had any problems. Suddenly my wireless connection stopped working. My wireless light was on, I even turned it off and back on to see if that would do anything.

My Network and Sharing center told me the Windows wireless service was not started.

When I went into services it showed that WLAN Autoconfig was set to start automatically, but it showed that it was not started. When I selected to start it I got this message
"Windows could not start the WLAN Autoconfig service Error 193 0xc1"

I checked Device Manager and I did not see anything that looked like a wireless adapter. I checked my work laptop to see what that would look like. I had 2 adpaters showing, A Broadcom 802.11 Network Adapter and an Atheros AR8132 PCI Ethernet Controller.

I ran both a virus scan and sfc /scannow. The last one did find corrupt files. A few that it was not able to fix, like MSOERT2.dll I manually copied from my work laptop that is also running Win 7.

I tried a USB wirless adapter from Linksys, thinking that perhaps the internal wireless adapter was malfunctioning. That is recognized by my computer but the WLAN service is still not functioning.

I can get on the internet with a hard wire. At this point I don't know what else to try, other than upgrading to Win 7 Pro. My laptop came pre-installed with Windows 7 and I never created a restore CD.

I am running a Dell Precision M4800 with Windows 7 Pro (Service Pack 1) and my Wireless LAN connection keeps disconnecting. The wireless adapter is an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. I only have one wireless network in range and it is set to a Security

Good evening,

This is actually a follow-up to a previous post (http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/202490-can-i-disable-my-wireless-network-connection.html) I had in this forum but since I marked that one 'solved' I figured it would be best to start a new thread.

In that thread I was told that since I didn't have any kind of network in my house (I only have one computer) it would be okay to
disable my Wireless Network Connection -- 802.11n Wireless LAN Card.

I did this and now I notice in my Event Viewer under Custom View > Administrative Events there is an error saying: WLAN Autoconfig Service has successfully stopped.

I am curious if this service is connected with my now 'disabled' 802.11n Wireless Lan Card? If so, would there be any problem with 'stopping' it in Services since the Wireless Lan Card is already disabled too?

Thanks and regards,


A:Can I stop the 'WLAN Autoconfig Service'


If you are not using your Wi-Fi adapter at all, it is safe to stop the WLAN Autoconfig Service. If you are using a wireless manager software and you are using your Wi-Fi adapter you must stop the WLAN Auto config service bec. they will conflict and will cause an issue.

Hi, I'm running Windows Vista and recently I've been having some problems. Earlier today I recieved an error message numerous times that said "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort2".

So I ran a disk check but after it completed and restarted, the internet wouldn't work, and no networks could be found. Also, I noticed that my computer has been running kind of slow, and Windows Explorer sometimes freezes, so I have no idea what the deal is.

Now, I keep getting the message "WLAN AutoConfig has stopped working" and everytime I try to get it to run again, that same message pops up for some reason. The slow computer/freezing exactly coincides with this problem too. I have no idea if the controller error and the WLAN error have anything to do with each other, but they have both only recently started happening.

In Event Manager, the last thing I could find that happened before the WLAN error was this message:

"Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.

I have a rather strange problem.
PC boots normally, though somehow slowly ? you can really hear the HD is working hard! Wireless is connected as it should, as one of the last tasks in the entire start up process. Good signal with 4-5 pins in the internet access icon down in the right corner of the lower menu bar, and no problems with connection to the internet.
However, after 1 minute or so, I can hear the HD start working intensively again, and then it disconnects the internet access, shown by a red cross over the internet access icon. Just before that, the screen flashes a bit, and the color of the lower menu bar becomes slightly more pale, as if some booting is still going on. Going into the Services.msc, the WLAN Auto Config says that it is started, but opening it in ?General?, it says Stop. When I click on Start, it reconnects and works fine again.

If I do nothing, after yet another 2-3 minutes it tries to reconnect, and eventually after 5-8 minutes after reboot it is reconnected, and work fine again.
I off course use Antivirus program (Microsoft Essentials) and have installed all the latest W7 updates, including SP1.

Why this odd behavior? A virus?

Hi Magissia,

Thats a service that is used to detect and connect to wireless networks. If you do not have Wireless you can disable this service. See the link below.

Event 4001 is not really an error and can be simply ignored and I do not know of a way to stop the event from showing up other than stopping the service if you don't in fact need it.

My computer (Lenovo Thinkpad T400, running Windows Vista) kept hanging at the shutting down screen and would't shut down unless I forced it. USB devices also weren't recognised when plugged in, or when unplugged and re-plugged in.

I ran a clean boot and isolated the WLAN AutoConfig service as the source of the problem. When I disable that, everything works fine, but then there's no wireless internet.

Any idea what could be going on? This has been driving me nuts the past few days. It started shortly after I created a new user account on the computer, though I think it only gave trouble a day or so later. I also updated the Lenovo Power Manager, but am unsure how that could be connected.

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to advise me on a fix for a problem I'm having with my WLAN Autoconfig, windows keeps telling me that the service isn't running - I've noticed when I run Services.msc that it's usually not on, so I start it up which seemed to have solved the problem yesterday but today - not so much...

So now it's not showing visible wireless networks (all working fine on the network with other pc's on xp), doesn't seem to respond to going into flight mode etc.

All drivers are up to date for the laptop (it's probably only a couple of months old).

If there's any particular information you need just let me know and I'll get it right over to you.

Thanks in advance!

Hi fellas,

First of all, sorry if some of you find this thread duplicate, but I couldn't find one closely related to my case.

And the case is as follows: On my HP dv6-2010eq laptop with Atheros WiFi chipset the WiFi connection drops at 'random' intervals after the laptop has been started. The only thing that solves this issue (albeit for short) is manually disabling and then re-enabling the WLAN device from Network Adapters.

This manifested few months ago, alas I didn't recall what I might have changed back then.

Sometimes it drops almost immediately after boot, sometimes it takes hours to do so... The lappy has 3 user accounts. Exactly the same behavior on all three of them.

Now, the only thing I could see as a possible reason from the event logs is that right before the drop an event 'WLAN Autoconfig has successfully stopped.' occurs. Without any further explanation.

So far, when I boot in Safe Mode with Networking this issue doesn't present itself for as many hours as the laptop runs.

Tried disabling few programs (firewall, antivir, etc.) but still the same...

Any help is highly appreciated and I am ready to fully cooperate! Thanks!

My laptop was running fine but I had a lot of backdated Microsoft Updates that I had not installed. I just installed all the important updates and now I cannot connect to any wireless networks:

1. When I select Network Connections from the system tray only my wired connection shows. No Wireless networks are listed.
2. In Control Panel my Wi-Fi connection (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230) shows as Not Connected.
3. Selecting Properties, Configure, General shows the Device is working properly and the Driver Version is the most up-to-date.
4. Right Click and Connect again just shows my wired connection and does not detect any Wireless networks.
5. Right Click and Diagnose gives "The Windows Wireless Service is not running on this computer"
6. Run Repairs as Administrator gives the same message with Not Fixed.
7. Running Services.msc shows WLAN AutoConfig is set up to run automatically but is not actually running.
8. Trying to start the service manually in the services window gives Error 193: 0xc1 and it doesn't run.

As I said, everything was working fine until I installed all the Windows Updates from the Microsoft Updates window. My wired connection works fine but I just cannot get WLAN AutoConfig to run and so my wi-fi connection won't work.

Any advice greatly received.

Many thanks.

It's a new HP laptop, the m6-1158. I purchased it about three months ago. When I got it, I updated the network card directly from Intel to the latest driver. When I started having issues around a month ago, I reinstalled the OEM driver from HP. When awaking my computer from its sleep, the network card would find my network but it would not connect. It would say, roughly, unable to connect. Eventually I can get it to work by deleting and re-adding the connection several times. The problem doesn't occur every time I awaken my computer, but maybe once every three times.

There have been some changes in my network. I added a wireless extender and set it up on the same SSID. I also changed my wireless security from WPA/WPA2 to just WPA2. I have seen the same problem occur on another Windows 8 laptop in my network.

When running Intel's WiFi troubleshooter, it fails on the association test.

Every time the connection fails, I get the following error in Event Viewer:

I wiped the stupid Windows 7 Starter that came with my netbook and installed Windows 7 Professional and ever since the WLAN Autoconfig Service refuses to start on boot despite it being set to Automatic. It also won't start manually either through "services.msc" or "net start". The only way I can start it is to run the troubleshooter and let it start WLAN Autoconfig, but half the time I get an error stating the troubleshooter failed to start, and I have to try multiple times or go into the Network and Sharing Center and run the troubleshooter as an administrator (which still sometimes gives the same error). I checked and made sure every service listed as a dependency for WLAN Autoconfig is set to automatic (I changed one from manual), which didn't help.

I only installed my DIR-635 router just yesterday, and today i found out what a pain the lagspike-per-60 second thing was that the WLAN Autoconfig service causes when it searches.
I was messing around with a fix and when i disabled the service i had no idea that i wouldn't be able to connect to my wireless anymore after i re-enabled it.
So yeah, that's what happened. I disabled the service, then tried to connect to my wireless network again but i cannot, even though it shows up in my detected networks.

I spend hours googling for a solution, it seems many people have the can-see-network, but-cant-connect problem. Just noone that got it in this particular way. Could someone please help me get my connection back?

So I was disabling unnecessary services on my netbook Windows 7 Starter 32 bit computer, following BlackViper's configuration. After disabling all the unnecessary services I have been unable to connect to my internet via Wifi. After experimenting I found that the WLAN AutoConfig service is the one responsible, and I cannot get it to start again. I get the following message:

"Windows could not start the WLAN AutoConfig service on Local Computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

If I understand correctly, I need to enable one of the other services that this one depends on to run. The problem is I cannot identify which service this one needs to start back up.

I tried re-enabling them all, and I was able to connect again. But I do not want them all running, only the bare necessary since this is an old and slow computer.

If anyone knows which service(s) WLAN AutoConfig depends on to run please let me know, or another fix.

A:Windows 7 Starter WLAN AutoConfig Service will not start

Nevermind, for future reference heres how I solved the problem:

Go to Properties in the service, you can see the Dependencies. Simply turn those services back on and I was able to get it working.

I am running Vista Ultimate, and my laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6305tx.

My laptop can no longer connect to wireless. (The wireless switch is on)

It is not detecting any wireless signals (Even though there is definately one; this laptop is connected it it).

In Device Manager under Network adapters 'isatap' is not working correctly;
"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this decice. (Code 31)"
Microsoft, however, says that this is an ignorable issue.

Also, under services WLAN AutoConfig has the Serveice status "Stopped"
I have tired to start it, but it comes up with an error message;

"Windows could not start the WLAN AutoConfig service on Local Computer
Error 1067: The process termitated unexpectedly"

I have updated the BIOS and network adaptor drivers also.

I have also tried system restore.

I have tried disabling IPV6 aswell.
Any ideas?

I need some help to get my wireless connection to work again.
After recent Windows 10 Update, my wireless connection no longer works. I've done some troubleshooting and I have ruled out my ISP, cable modem, and router, leaving the issue to be something within the computer (Dell laptop - Inspiron 7537).The wired connection works fineWhen I run Windows Network Diagnosis, it tells me that the Windows Wireless Service is not running (see attached pdf report)When I try to manually start the WLANSVC service, i get an error message that says "Windows could not start the WLAN AutoConfig service on Local Computer Error 193:0xc1" (see attached)When I try to manually start the WLANSVC service from the command prompt (as Admin) I get a slightly different message that says "The WLAN AutoConfig service is starting. The WLAN AutoConfig service could not be started. A system error has occurred. System error 193 has occurred. *** is not a valid Win32 application." (see attached)I've downloaded the latest Intell PROset Wireless drivers from Dell (V18.20.0.9) for the Wireless-N 7260 wireless network adapter and have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. This didn't help.I've attached some screenshots and a pdf copy of the Windows Network Diagnostics report.Wi-Fi Troubleshooting Report.pdf

A:Windows could not start the WLAN AutoConfig service on Local Computer

Hi, welcome to Tenforums.
Wlansvc only runs if:
a. ethernet is not active/connected
b. Wifi is active

Presumably since you have used this you have
a. Enabled Wifi e.g. via the tile in the Action Centre
b. ensured you are not in airplane mode
c. pressed your Wifi button to switch it on
d. your Wifi is enabled on your router.

Now a number of people have reported problems post 1511 as you probably know.

I also noted this comment:
Windows 10 update 1511 removes TLS 1.0 authentication from Windows. You have to use TLS 1.2.
Windows 10 version 1511, no longer able to connect to Enterprise WiFi

Atheros 9000 series cards seem to be problematic with 1511.

Please add your Wifi card type to your system specs.

We have about 20 of the 840 G2 Elitebook's in production (and a couple G1's too). Throughout the day, they are all randomly dropping their network connection. There is no rhyme or reason to when it occurs. I have been working with the support folks for my WiFi controller and AP's, only to find today that I can reproduce the problem at home with my TP-Link AP. These event log messages have been echoed over the Intel community forums for the better part of five years, and as far as I can tell - there is only one successful resolution - REPLACE THE CARD WITH SOMETHING ELSE (or get a USB NIC)! And it doesn't seem to be limited to one NIC ... it's any of the Intel Dual-Band AC-XXXX adapters. Again - five years this has been happening! I noticed that Intel is telling folks "you should try the latest driver". And when that fails they say "go talk to your OEM, you should use their driver". Well, I have used five or so different drivers, Windows 7 and Windows 10, etc. And now I am back to the OEM driver - waiting for it to fail again! In the meantime, does anyone have a real solution for this issue? Here are the errors in the order that they occur ... First a "DNS Client Events" error for whatever you were doing at the time. In this case, I was watching a YouTube video. Name resolution for the name www.youtube-nocookie.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.Then these two "WLAN-AutoConfig" errors, always right behind one another ...

OK let's see what's up. Yesterday I woke up and suddenly my wifi wasn't showing any networks and my wifi manager kept crashing. I have a Samsung RV511 and for the year or so that I've had it there has never been this problem. Following instructions I found online I've done just about everything but everytime I try and start up the autoconfig service in 'services' I get error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.
I found this post on this forum: wireless service can't start
I did all the things mentioned, including downloading the reg files again from the link given in the thread, but to no avail. I even went to the drastic measure of deleting my wifi and lan drives from the network adapters part of Device Manager and downloaded two from the Samsung website. The computer is exactly how it was though; my LAN remains intact while wifi is just the same. I've run virus scans (I've had Avast since November 2011), run wise doctor to fix registry and used SuperAntiSpyware to remove any spyware it found. Overall I spent almost 16 hours trying to sort this yesterday and I'm at my wit's end. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also, even though the LAN works from my downloaded drivers, is it possible I have the wrong one for my wifi? Or are they somewhat interchangeable?

A:'Windows could not start the WLAN autoconfig service on Local Computer

Maybe your WiFi card has failed. It can happen.
Does Samsung have a hardware diagnostic program you can run.

Hi, while your desktop is up the system is still processing things, like starting services etc. If you look at the Event 100 details you'll find more details on that.
A good document that explains in detail what is happening during each phase is:

The operative word there being "successfully ", and the stupidity on a Microsoft Developers part being; if it's stopped successfully they why the ____ does it mess up my event log with a warning flag? I get fed up of this garbage. Isn't this why Vista failed so badly? You'd think Microsoft would learn.

Hello all,

I am been trying to fix an issue on my girlfriend's computer. Ever since I removed a malware infection she had, the computer was doing the following: taskbar turns grey and internet stops working. Thinking this was still a malware issue, I posted in that section of the website (see link below). I have since been cleared of malware, but we have determined that the issue is related to the Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager and WLAN AutoConfig, both of which are set to start to automatically start when booting, but seem to be crashing. My taskbar goes back to normal and the internet works once I manually start these services.
