The wmp11cfg.exe process installs and configures the Wireless-B Adapter by Linksys. It lets your laptop make contact with the 802.11b network standard which is commonly used in homes for Internet connectivity without the need for running LAN cables as well as in corporate environments, coffee shops, convention centers, hotels, airports, and other public spaces that offers on the go connectivity to mobile users.
The process wmp11cfg.exe is used by the WLAN Monitor application to create profiles that hold different configuration settings, check the link information, and search for available wireless networks. If you are using Windows 98SE/ME/2000, the wmp11cfg.exe file is the one that provides additional configuration options for the 802.11b range of network hardware. This is because Windows XP has its own built-in configuration tool called the Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration.
After installing the Adapter, the wmp11cfg.exe file icon will appear in the system tray. The icon displays the Link Information screen, which will give you how strong the current wireless signal, is and how good the quality of the connection is. The More Information button gives you additional status information about the current wireless connection while the Site Survey tab which searches for available wireless networks along with the Profiles tab which performs configuration changes are also provided.
The wmp11cfg.exe process enables the WEP key encryption feature, which allows you to connect to the network by selecting the level of WEP encryption. The pass phrase, which is case sensitive and the WEP key, is required to complete the network connection. The WEP key may also be manually entered in hexadecimal format.
This is a safe process. There is no necessity to remove this process from your system or change it in any way.
