Wireless logs. Logging can be enabled through the netsh ras set tracing * en command. After enabling logging, you can either restart the computer or restart the Wireless Zero Configuration (for Windows XP) or Wireless Configuration (for Windows Server 2003) service with the net stop wzcsvc and net start wzcsvc commands. The wireless logs are located in the systemroot\tracing folder. The log files most useful for troubleshooting wireless issues are the following: Wzctrace.log Used mostly for 802.11 association. This file is present only on computers running Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1. Eapol.log Used mostly for IEEE 802.1X authentication. Wzcdlg.log Used for user interface changes, such as changes made through the View Available Networks or Choose a wireless network dialog boxes. Netman.log Used for user interface changes. Netshell.log Used for user interface changes. Along with any .old versions of these files
