hi there guys,

Win 7 Ultimate 64bit...

i would like to know why the Wireless Connection gets weird numbers, i believe it has a reference with the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter....

i mean, device manager it says #7 and #8 but from the task manager it says #8 and #9...

not a massive annoyance but what if i wanted to rename them to 1 and 2? it would make me happier..

please see attached screen caps. PC works great, i can totally live with it, but well, just to have things "the right way", if is easy i wouldnt mind to fix it...

thanks

If you are familiar with regedit, open it and go to key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx}\Descriptions

where xxxx is, I think, a system-specific CLSID number. You will find the names of the network interfaces there, with all the ###s. You can edit them there by clicking modify.

I recently found this in my network connections and I'm curious to what it is used for...



Anyone have an idea?

A:Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

It creates a virtual wireless card, making windows think that instead of one, you have two or more cards installed on your system. Keep in mind though, that the maximum bandwidth of your wireless card will be splitt when using this. It lets you connect to more then one wireless network at a time. For instance, an Ad-Hoc network and an Access Point at the same time. An access point and a wireless printer at the same time.

I found this quaint sounding entry in Device Manager (among network adapters) with driver dated 2006. Recommended update online search found one update but with a red lettered warning that I should not install it. So I cancelled.

What is this device? And do I need it?

A:Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter....???

Its purpose is to create a mobile hotspot using your Wireless NIC. For example, you have a 4G/3G USB device that lets you get internet access or you have a LAN (Ethernet) connection and you want to share the internet from your USB stick or LAN by making your laptop as a portable hotspot. You use the "Wireless Hosted Network" feature built-in to Windows to configure the "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" to host a portable hotspot on your laptop. You then configure your 3G/4G connection to share the internet to "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter"

Now any device can connect to your laptop (portable hotspot) and get internet access.

I recently installed an internet sharing program which utilizes the connected wireless internet and shares it within the same wireless card.

After installing the program, I noticed that Wifi Miniport adapter had been installed. I had this driver prior to my system reset but i had constant problems with it.

I have the same problems again and apparently, the program needs wifi miniport adapter to be working properly to work itself.
It has an error (a yellow triangle an with exclamation on it) and that code number is 10, (The device cannot start)

On the program's website, it recommended to just disable and reenable and then the exclamation will go away. But it didn't. I tried updating the driver, and windows update found a driver (unsigned though) but it cannot install the driver because the device cannot start.

So it doesn't update because of its original error. (it cannot start)

Any suggestions on getting Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter properly working?

First off any external package that purports to add access point functionality to Windows 7 is quackery pure and simple. It's a built-in feature and always has been. Uninstall the rogue software, report it's name here and destroy the miniport it created from an elevated command prompt thusly:

netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow

Now set the wlan hostednetwork SSID and WPA2-PSK/AES passphrase or key and start the wlan hostednetwork thusly:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=<my_ssid> key=<my_key>
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
netsh wlan show hostednetwork

Pitfalls:

1) ad hoc networking MUST be disabled on the wireless adapter
2) a Hosted Network capable wireless adapter is installed in the local computer. The driver for the wireless adapter must implement the wireless LAN device driver model defined by Microsoft for use on Windows 7. To receive the Windows 7 logo, a wireless driver must implement the wireless Hosted Network feature.
3) network connection sharing for use by other computers and devices requires the use of Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).

I'm trying to print wireless from my laptop to my Canon printer, but it say the printer is offline.  When I go into my drivers, it says there is an issue with the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Adapter #2.  Also, I'm getting a message in my Network Connections under my LAN that the network cable is unplugged.  Are these things related?  We had to replace our modem because we were getting spotty wireless connection.  We did some troubleshooting with the CenturyLink tech, but got everything plugged back in properly, and now with the new modem, our wireless devices are working better than ever.  Other than this printer issue.  Any thoughts?  It's driving me crazy!

hi all is this the way to disable Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter?
in cmd as admin "netsh wlan stop hostednetwork" no quotes. then stop the service by typing "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow" also no quotes

and if you want to turn it back on netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ? then netsh wlan start hostednetwork (without the question mark!)

Hello,

I have been using my desktop for about 3 months now and suddenly within the last week a new connection appeared in my control panel described as "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter". Normally I wouldn't care about a benign excess connection, but I suspect it is the reason the network connection icon in my taskbar shows that I am disconnected, despite having access to the internet:



When I click "uninstall" in the properties menu the connection is still there when the computer reboots. I know that it can be used as a virtual hotspot but I currently have no use for this as I have a non-mobile desktop and a wireless router already. If anyone knows of a better use for this or how to disable it so that it no longer interferes with my taskbar icon (simply disabling the connection doesn't work ) it would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!

A:How to uninstall Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

You can turn off the virtual WiFi service by running the following commands in an elevated command prompt. This should get rid of the connection on the adaptor page as well.

no quotes> "netsh wlan stop hostednetwork" hit enter after, then use this command "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow" hit enter again.

than type this "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow"  also no quotes. at first i thought this was disabling it same as right clicking and disable but actually it disables the service and the microsoft
wifi miniport is gone. for some reason its mode gets set to allow instated of disallow  and when you uninstall it it reappears and messes up the networking, example, printers,wifi routers,etc.
theres no way to uninstall it because it part of windows 7 for sharing wifi. IT WORKS TRY IT.

Just reinstall your Windows 7 approved wireless drivers and the Virtual mini port adaptor will reinstall with the drivers automatically.

The drivers do need to be Windows 7 approved in order to have the Virtual mini port adaptor which is only used to set up a hosted wireless network.

I just bought a brand new Asus K52F and when the laptop goes into sleep mode the "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter & WiFi Miniport Adapter #2" fail. When i turn the computer back on i have trouble connecting to the internet, and the devices have error (code 43). I can still connect to the internet though. I have re-downloaded the drivers, rolled them back, updated them, everything but it hasn't worked. Any help would be sweet.

Also can anyone tell me what the white light up button next to the power button does??

A:WiFi Miniport Adapter/Adapter #2 Error

The virtual wifi mini port adaptor is used as a virtual wifi device so you can turn your machine into a wireless AP "access point" either with commands or the connectify software. The adaptor sometimes activates itself and causes problems, even when your not using it as an access point.

It should fix the problem if you go into device manager, go to "view" top of page, then choose "show hidden devices" which should allow you to see the mini port, disable the virtual mini port adaptor and that should fix the problem.

That little button next to the power button is a reset button, it's like restarting but a little different.

Everyone's had the problem of wanting to disable the wifi miniport, or enable it to share wifi.

I have a different problem. I would like to change which wireless device the wifi miniport uses, as the external USB wireless adapter I was using died. I cannot see the wifi miniport adapter without that device attached, it seems. I don't even know if the wifi adapter even as options to select which wireless card to use even if I could get it to appear.

Is there a way to do this without having to resort to reinstalling Windows 7?

I am fairly familiar with netsh. No command line option seems to be available to switch network adapters for the wifi miniport.

It also appears that it will simply not switch to the only wireless network adapter detected, and I know it will host a virtual wifi network, I've done ICS/AdHoc before.

Using Windows 7, my wireless works great in the vicinity of the router, but slows down and will not load some sites when 30+ feet away from the router. The signal strength is excellent. Any ideas?

A:Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

Okay you may need to check around your router to first see if there are any mirrors really close. These can deflect the wireless rays therefore decreasing signal strength.

Your second option if this fails, is too purchase a WIFI-Repeater or booster.

I have added a webpage below and if you wish too purchase any of these simply google them (Maybe amazon, ebay etc.).

A:Microsoft Tun Miniport Adapter#2

Peter, lets slow down and think before spending money. If you reinstalled several times and still have problems, it would be my guess that the problem is with the computer and not the OS. See if this test shows anything.

Some time ago in my device manager, in Network adapters, appeared this thing: Microsoft Tun Miniport Adapter #2, with an exclamation sign. I couldn't remove it. I understand it's related to network bridging, or something like that. Any ideas how to get rid of it?

Hi guys,

I'm pulling my hair out on this one; hopefully you can help me. I'm trying to create a virtual wifi AP using the Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter and the netsh wlan command line context, but it's giving me a headache.

"netsh wlan show drivers" in the command line includes the output line "Hosted network supported: Yes" so my wireless card should be supported, correct? I can setup the hostednetwork fine with "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=blah key=blah" but when I try to start it with "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" I get the following output:

"The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation."
My network adapter is a Rosewill RNX-N1 which contains a Ralink 2870 chipset (that chipset has been confirmed to support hostednetwork).

Any suggestions?

A:Errors with starting Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter

I can't say what the problem might be but the link below shows two methods for setting up a hosted wireless network. You can also try the link for connectify software which is just a user interface that makes it easier for some people.

It's important to note that a hosted wireless network is made to share a wireless connection with other wireless devices.


The hosted wireless network isn't made to share out through an Ethernet connection in any way shape or form, though it may be possible to do so you may end up with an unreliable network and there are no standard tutorials to set that up.

If you right click it in device manager it should give you an uninstall option, uninstall and on reboot it should try to pick it up again. You may need to reinstall or update drivers from manufacturer website.

A:Unable to update driver for Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

I would advise right clicking on the device that has the excalamation point and choosing "Uninstall", then select the check box to delete the driver software as well. Reboot and see if Windows detects and tries to install the software again, if not you can:
1) Go the the manufactuers website to get the drvier
2) Use the driver CD - if you got one for that device

NOTE - If this is for your wifi adapter, you will need to connect your computer to the router with an ethernet cable to get the driver from the web.

These were Related to athr.sys Atheros Extensible Wireless LAN device driver. Obviously a conflict between the two. I would re-install using newest version available.

Hi,
Generally speaking, the error code 39 means Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. You can try to reinstall it for test.

Hi everyone!

I have encountered the following problem with internet sharing: after using virtual miniport adapter to share my internet connection, when I want to shut down the pc, it won't. Just a BSOD.

When the connection is not shared, it works fine, no BSOD. But I need to share my connection to my girlfriends tablet.

I am connected to a free hotspot via a TP-Link TL-Wn7200ND ver 1.0 adapter and I have shared this connection using the Microsoft virtual miniport adapter. Everything works fine, till the moment I try to shut down the laptop. The system tries to shut down, but after 6 or 7 minutes it restars itself and get the message that an error occurred.

As requested, I attach the result of the sf diagnostic tool.

The wireless driver seem to stop working (2 drivers - 802.11b/g Mini Card Wireless Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter) and it cannot detect any Wireless Access Points (WAPs). To resolve the issue each time I have been uninstalling them from Device Manager, rebooting the laptop and letting Windows 7 install them again from Windows Update. After this it can then "see" the WAPs again. How can I prevent this from happening again?

Thanks for any help in advance

Scroll down this list to find 'WLAN Auto Config'

Double click on 'WLAN Auto Config' On the general tab, select from the start up type drop down menu, select 'Automatic'. Under Service Status click on 'Start'. Then 'Apply' these settings and exit from all open control panel windows.

When I initially installed Win10 my ethernet network tray icon was what I would call normal. However, after a number of upgrades it now looks as though its corrupted as its missing a few lines. If I goto select which icons appear on the task bar the icon there is corrupt and matches the tray icon. The icon in the network and ether section of settings shows the correct icon. While my ethernet works fine I thought someone else may have solved this issue already. I've also rest the taskbar icon cache but that did not fix the issue. Thanks for any help.

Hi, I'm thinking about trying the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter v2 (Miracast) (for TV projection in the office) with my Surface Pro 4 within my business/office environment. Which means, there are wifi Access Points all over for our business wireless network. One of our networking engineers is concerned about interference with our wifi signal when using this miracast device. It's only $50 adapter so we could simply try it but wanted to reach out to ya'll first to see if anyone has experience using it in an business environment -- should this be a concern? Thanks!

Hi there,

I bought today Lenovo Y50-70, it was without OS, so i installed windows 7 on it. Now im facing
problem, where at internet access there are no available wifi connections. So i installed WLAN driver from
the Lenovo support, also didn't help. I don't know much about drivers, but it seems that under device manager
-> Network Adapters is wireless network adapter or something like that missing and im out of ideas how to
fix it.
Btw, under network adapters are only bluetooth devices and my wireless usb device.

Hello guys, hope someone can help me figure out whats going on with my tablet (WinBook). I've installed W10 few weeks ago since then never had any problems with it, but today I noticed I cannot connect to wifi. it's gone from Network settings, if I open "connection" icon on task bar I only see Airplane mode..Network adapter from Device manager is also gone. I have no idea what to do now...
I did try this - connect to internet via Bluetooth from Lumia phone and with Intel Driver Update Utility scanned tablet, only thing it found is update for Graphics driver.. what else can I do?

A:W10 - Network Adapter is missing - no WiFi. What can I do?

I don't know why you are using the intel driver update, but maybe you should get the drivers from the oem tablet?
maybe you should look in the update settings history and see if you got some weird thing there or anything.
maybe check updates with the bluetooth connection, or scan for hardware changes in device manager.
I tried to get you the link of Winbook drivers, BUT I am not sure if it's microcentertech and if that's the one the made your tablet, well their site is crap. maybe you should give some exact model or anything. I am sure if we got the wifi driver and you installed it, everything would go back to normal.

I tried to open "network connections" in the settings of the start menu and the page was blank without any connections.
I tried to plug the ethernet cable but nothing changed.

Do you know what is the problem? do you think that is due to viruses?

qurios, welcome to the windows 7 forum. Have you looked at the HP website for the model of laptop?
they usually have drivers for most OS's. Sometimes the Vista driver will work on windows 7 if it is an older laptop.

you need the motherboard drivers as well as the network device drivers and video card drivers.

Worked great for about a month.

Then no WIFI. Checked device manager and only the Family Ethernet device was present.

Then a few reboots later it appeared again. Since then it just randomly appears and goes missing.

It's a Qualcomm Atheros AR9485

Driver version is 10.0.0.287

Driver date is 3/25/2014

Windows says the driver is up to date. Tried installing Windows 10. Same problem. Tried a fresh install of Win 8.1. Same problem. The laptop has barely left my table so hasn't been knocked around at all.

Any help much appreciated. I don't really want to buy a WIFI dongle so would like to get the laptop sorted. Thanks in advance.

My desktop computer loses connection regularly and I cannot locate as to why. I have many other devices throughout the house at various locations which maintain a connection fine.

When the connection drops it still displays I am connected, but there is clearly no connectivity.

I've tried toggling between two devices, one an eternal PCI adapter and the other a USB adapter. I get interruptions on both, so my conclusion is there must be a setting causing this.

The desktop has been moved to other locations just in case of interference, and I've tried channel swapping as well.

I would suggest choosing a single wifi device and uninstalling any wifi utilities that you have installed, or drivers for any other wifi device (including disconnecting them). Then follow this tutorial to see if it helps at all with the single wifi device you have installed (created by Dinesh): Internet Troubleshooting Guide

Just a guess here...

If you downloaded the driver from windows updates website...then check settings - system - apps & features - here on the top you will see manage optional features...click manage optional features - click add (internet connections is required) - here it will show optional updates available for your system...click any & you will see install tab. Check if your driver is available there.

I have tried finding it in Device Manager and the icon is not there. what do I do? I don't know a lot about computers but I will try to give as much information as needed.

A:Missing Network adapter icon in device manager

If the driver isn't installed, it would show up under "Other devices". If it doesn't show up there, then there are two possibilities:

1) If it's an add-on adapter (not built into the motherboard) it could be poorly connected, or the slot could be bad.
2) The adapter is bad.

Since then Windows does not recognize the Wifi network adapter. It is not there in the Device Manager at all.

It does not seem to be a hardware problem because when I boot using Ubuntu, the Wifi works without any problem.

Can anyone guide me how to solve this issue. Since the adapter is not being listed in the device manager, I don't know how to update or reinstall drivers.

if there was a driver disk with it, run setup on that. If you are on Vista the driver may need to be upgraded. You may need to be on SP2 or later on XP. Once the system recognises the device you will need to know the password to access a secure network.
