How to Start/Stop WLAN AutoConfig

Service name: WlanSvc

Display name: WLAN AutoConfig


Description:

The WLANSVC service 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.
