Wireless Zero Configuration (XP) Vs WLAN AutoConfig (Vista)
There is a wireless configuration manager hardwired in both the operating systems that helps to configure and manage the wireless connection on your computer. In Windows XP this is known as Wireless Zero Configuration and in Windows Vista this is called WLAN AutoConfig. Some times you get 3rd party wireless configuration utilities that help you to do the same job. Examples are like Intel Proset Wireless manager or Belkin Wireless Manager etc. These programs are supplied with the drivers disc for the specific wireless adapter.
