Do you experience frequent problems with your Windows 11 laptop detecting wireless connections? If your answer is yes, I recommend you check the status of the WLAN AutoConfig service. WLAN AutoConfig service ( WLANSVC ) helps Windows computers discover a wireless network (802.11 standards) and connect to it. The duty of this service is the same function as Wireless Zero Configuration(WZC) in Windows XP. In my personal experience, we can fix most wireless connectivity issues by starting the WLAN AutoConfig service instead of vendor wireless utilities on a computer. Windows 11, 10, and Vista devices use the WLANSVC service to manage wireless networks, and you can find it on the services window under the display name WLAN Autoconfig. Sometimes WLAN AutoConfig does not start automatically for some strange reasons. It creates issues with detecting WiFi networks. The quick solution is to restart this service. So we may need to go to the service page and starts this service
