However, if it stops working, there are some steps you can take to fix it. These steps may not work for every issue with the WSA service, but they will get you back on track in most cases.
What is the WSA service?
WSA is a Windows service that allows you to connect to any Wi-Fi access point. It also enables you to connect to Bluetooth devices, such as keyboards and mice. This means that WSA is an essential part of Windows 11 and should never be disabled.
However, if the WSA service stops working, there are some steps you can take to fix it. These steps will get you back on track in most cases.
For example, if the WSA service stops working because your computer is running too hot, restarting your device should resolve the issue. If it’s not resolved, powering off your device may be necessary. You can also try disabling or uninstalling third-party anti-virus software first before uninstalling other programs on your system.

Why does the WSA service stop working?
The WSA service may stop working if there is a problem with your wireless card or your connection to the internet. This can happen because of an issue with Windows 11, but most times it’s due to an external factor.
If you’re not sure why the WSA service stopped working, try this simple troubleshooting technique:
1) Unplug the computer from the power supply for at least 60 seconds.
2) Plug in the pc and turn it on.
3) After Windows starts up, check if the WSA service is still not working.
4) If it’s still not working, continue to step four. Otherwise, skip to step seven.
How do you fix the WSA service?
The Windows service that manages the wireless connections of your device is called “Windows Service Application.” To fix any issues with the WSA service, you need to try these steps below.
1) Identify the issue
2) Restart the service
3) Check for updates
4) Install new drivers
5) Run a troubleshooter
6) Reset your network adapter settings
Disabling WSA temporarily
If you’re having trouble with WSA, you may be able to temporarily disable the service. This will at least allow you to use your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices without any issues.
First, open your Services window by pressing “Windows Key + R” on your keyboard, type “services.msc” into the box without quotes and press “Enter.”
Next, find the WSA service in the list and right click it. Select “Properties” from the drop down menu.
In the Properties page, under “General,” click “Stop.” This will stop WSA so that you can continue using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices if necessary.
Upon doing so, Windows will prompt you to restart WSA when it’s needed again. To avoid this message each time, uncheck the box next to “Start this service when Windows starts.” You can always manually start the service if it is disabled by following these instructions:
1) Open Services Window by pressing “Windows Key + R” on your keyboard, type “services.msc” into the box without quotes and press enter;
2) Find WSAService in list of services; 3) Right click WSAService (
Resetting your computer’s networking settings
In some cases, the WSA service may crash because your computer’s networking settings are corrupted. If you suspect this is the case, you can reset your network settings to fix it.
Open “Control Panel” by clicking the Windows key and typing “Control Panel.” Once there, click “Network Connections.” Select your wireless connection and right-click on it. Select “Properties” from the list of options that appear. In your connection settings window, select “Wireless LAN Properties” from the pulldown menu. In this screen, there is a section for “Advanced Settings.” Find the setting labeled as “Wireless Network Mode” and change it from “802.11b/g/n Mixed Mode” to just “802.11b/g Mixed Mode”. Finally, click Apply and then OK to save changes.
Fixing Windows Firewall to allow network connections.
A common issue with the Windows Service is that it may not allow network connections to be established. This occurs when the default firewall settings on your device don’t allow it to communicate with other devices. To fix this, you need to change your Windows Firewall:
1) Open Settings and select “Manage Connections”
2) Select “Windows Firewall” and change the settings for “Allow an app through Windows Firewall” to “On”
3) When prompted, select “HomeGroup (Private)” and “HomeGroup (Public)”
