TOPIC: Using NetStumbler

Using NetStumbler 8 years 8 months ago #32974

Hihi!

I am doing a practical about NetStumbler but then I have a problem about it... when I switch it on at the bottom of NetStumbler there is a sentence of words saying "Access is denied". I do not understand

When I checked my practical, it says that turn of your Windows Wireless Configuration Service so that NetStumbler can manage the wireless signal. However when I tried to find it I couldn't. I read a comment on another forum it says that turn off your Windows Zero Wireless Service, that I couldn't find it as well.

Can anyone help me?

It's ages since I played with NetStumbler. Is the problem related to the account that you're using when logging onto Windows? Is it admin level?

Re: Using NetStumbler 8 years 8 months ago #32983

Are you a local admin on the computer?

NetStumbler is setup to automatically stop the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration service (or whatever its name is) when you launch it. If NetStumbler is saying "access denied," then I suspect it tried to use your username and password to do it, but failed since you don't have access.

Try to stop it manually:
1. Go to Start > Run, and type services.msc and hit OK
2. When the Services MMC comes up, look for and select the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration (or whatever its name is), and click the Stop button.

If you aren't an admin, you'll be told either access denied or another message that implies such. At that point, you'll just need to do this with an account with local admin rights. I can't remember if you can edit NetStumbler's settings to use different credentials to do this...

To find out if you're an admin:
1. Go to Start > Run, type lusrmgr.msc and hit OK.
2. Click the Groups node
3. Double-click the Administrators group
4. Then your username should be in that group
