Windows 7 Troubleshooting Wizard is not a myth

I know this sounds crazy.   The network troubleshooting wizard actually works.

So I was on a designer’s machine and she was really having trouble with her wireless card – it’s reporting an IP Address conflict.

We figured that a simple:

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Should do the trick, but it was skipping the wireless adapter.  Confused – we stumbled across the wizard and clicked “Windows Network Diagnostics”.

To our amazement it asks us if we want it to fix the network for us. 



Also explained why it wasn’t working before.
