This seems to be an issue for some users. Perhaps we should add a domain 
automatically if none was present. Right now, I'll add it to the FAQ.

Well, if it's really an old XP installation, I don't think we can easily 
fix this bug if there is no way to reproduce it.

I have an old XP installation which doesn't start the service needed for 
wireless automatically, even though it's set to auto. Also, no idea why, 
Event Log doesn't give a clue.
