network control panel in vista not responding
I'm having a problem with vista and the network and sharing center. It takes a real long time for it to show up and then the panel is unresponsive. Where my network should be it says unknown, then server unresponsive. I still have an internet connection. i need to be able to choose what wireless network i can connect to.

Hi, Thank you for your post.Please understand that Microsoft provides different support services which have different service levels and support boundaries. For process hang and freezing issues, it is necessary to debug the related crash dump files or the freezing systems to locate the root cause. Also, in most cases, it is necessary to check the source codes as well. Unfortunately, debugging is out of our Forums support boundary. A support call to our product service team is needed for the debugging service.

Same problem here too. The Network and Sharing Center takes ten minutes to come up. Once it does the dialog freezes. I can't even move it. This is preventing all of the options from operating. The network lists "Unknown" and below that is "Server execution failed." If I kill the process the entire desktop UI reloads. What is the other way the network can be configured?
