An Annoying Windows Bug

4 June 2012

I got very annoyed when XP Pro introduced a “feature” that automatically shuts off wifi whenever a wired connection was active. There is no good reason for this. I used the ability to share connections.

Another thing is vexing me now. My machine was docked, and I did a suspend. Now Windows refuses to re-enable the wifi. It requires an admin credential to re-enable. This persists through a complete restart.

In the past, I have to boot off another media (like System Rescue CD), re-enable the wifi, and then restart Windows.

So thanks, Microsoft, for doing everything possible to limit connectivity.
