    What are the minimum service required to use wifi on win8?


    My wifi works fine but when, on msconfig, I choose 'Diagnostic startup', my wifi stops working. Which Microsoft Corporation services, on the Services tab in msconfig-'System Configuration', are required for running wifi so I can go online, I mean the bare minimum services. Thanks for any help you can provide, guys.

    WiFi has a lot of dependent services for network connectivity and therefore I would strongly advise against mixing and matching certain system services since the performance benefit received will be minimal. If you wish to boot the machine using only Windows services then please run a clean boot.

    To do so follow this tutorial but once the start-up items and services have been turned off do not troubleshoot them. - Troubleshoot Problem with Clean Boot in Windows 8

    Hope This Helps,
