I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

Okay, so I was browsing through the adapter settings in windows 7 and came across a Wiresless Conenction 2 which is a Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter. I don't remember seeing this on the list before, and it suddenly seems to have appeared. Has anyone else experienced this problem??

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.

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
Gab

A:Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #8 or #9??

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'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!

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).

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.

How do I permanantly remove this pos from my laptop? It's giving me errors, when I hit the wireless button (to enable/disable) on the laptop half the time it disables the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter, not my laptops wireless, I can't connect to

Didnt have a single issue until this was installed secretly on my machine.
 
MS post proper solution to PERMANANTLY remove this useless device that just breaks everything.

A:Uninstall Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter Permanantly

I finally found out how to uninstall the microsoft wifi miniport adapter its so easy all you do is go to the command prompt as a admin and type this "netsh wlan stop hostednetwork" with no quotes.
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.
its not a bug in windows 7. wow

A:Hide SSID on Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter?

Usually you would turn off the SSID broadcast using the routers set up page somewhere in the wireless connection settings. Connectify may have a setting for this also but I havn't found it yet.

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.

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.).

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.

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.

Hello, I have virtual wifi miniport active through nesth, I use it to share internet to my Nintendo 3ds but I can not share it with my Nintendo Ds, after reading and found that the virtual miniport wifi dhcp not active, I wonder if there is any way to enable the miniport dhcp, I have been sharing internet through mac OS x Snow Leopard but I work on both Windows and Mac OS, while I like to play while completing the build process.

Any help is truly appreciated.

A:Virtual Wifi Miniport, dhcp question.

You should be able to turn on DHCP the same way that you can on a regular NIC. Go to the Network and Sharing Center, then look left to "Change Adaptor Settings" and click that, highlight and right click the Virtual adaptor and choose properties, then right click TCP/IPv4, choose properties again, make sure that the upper dot is set to "Obtain an IP address Automatically, same for DNS.

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.

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.

I don't know much about computers but from everything Ive read you can uninstall or go to cmd and enter codes to get this adapter to stop working.  I went to device manager and disabled it.  When I go to system information, components, network
and look at my adapters it is enabled.  I started cmd, followed instructions here and disabled it.  After reboot I couldn't connect to the internet.  It said correct driver not installed.  I thought you could connect to the network from
the laptop without this adapter.  Am I misunderstanding something?  Can someone please help?  Like I said, I know nothing about computers.  I just want to connect to our network and internet without using this.

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.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me with a recent problem I ran into. My wifi router broke down and I thought as a workaround, use my laptop as a temporary wifi hotspot until I can purchase a new one. I was able to share my LAN connection but cannot pass the Internet access thru my ad-hoc. I found out that I need to enable the MS Virtual Wifi Miniport to be able to accomplish that. The BSOD happened right after enabling that adapter. I tried rebooting into safe mode where I disabled both my wifi adapter and the miniport. Re-installed the wifi adapter but BSOD recurred when I try to enable the miniport. Any suggestions?

I have succesfully used a Hyper-V virtual switch connected to the wireless adapter in my longer Hyper-V virtual switch adapter in Wifi no supported laptop All my VM's could access my LAN independently and could get an ip address from the DHCP server This means AFAIK that my wireless adapter can and does opererate in promiscuous mode This worked up to build Today I upgraded to build and this setup no longer works It appears that wifi adapters are simply not supported with Hyper-V virtual switches Bummer When you try to configure a wifi adapter in a virtual switch it is not simply grayed out or otherwise made impossible but it tries to go ahead and then gives an error message Wifi adapter no longer supported in Hyper-V virtual switch see attachment This does not make sense There is no other bridge or switch configured I found two work-arounds - configure the wired ethernet adapter to the virtual switch and create a bridge connection between the wired and the wifi adapters For me this does not work because I get an other error trying to create the bridge connection which I will report in an other thread - use ICS This works but has the huge disadvantage of having a NAT layer between the VM's and the rest of my network Has anyone experimented with this too Bart

Greetings,

There are two "Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Adapters" seen in Device Manager ............ one says the device was deleted in October of 2014. The other oneis called "Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2" and though enabled says it is disconnected and must be connected. I have no idea how to do this. Also, an acquaintance of mine, who also has Win 8.1, "sees" a second Microsoft Wi-Fi adapter called "Microsoft Hosted Network Vlirtual Adapter" and also a "Hyper-v Virtual Ethernet Adapter #2" He sees these when he does a ipconfig/all and I do not.

Any ideas on how to "connect" the device and thoughts on the "missing" objects ?

Best Wishes,

Rick

Those will be activated when you create a virtual machine. Nothing you can use on the 'real' system.

Does anyone have this device on their system?

This is different than the Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter that sometimes pops up. And there does not appear to be info about this adapter when searching the internets.

If I uninstall it, it just comes back. Disabling does not seem to cause any errors and that's what I've done for the moment.

Just wondering how it got added.

A:Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter

It most likely installed with your drivers for the wireless connection. I'm not sure why it installed WIFI direct virtual adaptor rather than the Msoft WIFI virtual mini port adaptor.

The mini port adaptor can cause connection problems on some systems unless it's disabled.

You should be able to uninstall it completely by following the link below.

Recently I've installed the new windows 10 version 1511 update, everything seems to be working fine except for one thing.

This would be my "Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2" driver, because prior to the installation of the new update it was working just fine. It seems that is not the case now, as windows claims that it's not functioning properly and has given it a "code 45" flag.

Is there anyway to fix this, or this a problem that's inherent with the new update and can only be fixed by its developers later?

Any advice on my situation would be appreciated, thank you.

I shall also provide pictorial examples to to better express my issue.

A:Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2 - Code 45

Did you try to just uninstall that offending virtual WiFi adapter #2 and forget about it?

Or maybe a better idea would be to just uninstall both of your virtual WiFi adapters and then just do "Scan for hardware changes" to make Windows discover and reinstall it from scratch.

I have been getting this error while trying to start a hosted network - "The hosted network couldn't be started.
The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation."

Going through forums, some of them suggested me to disable and renable the "Microsoft Virtual Network Adapter" from the device manager. Unfortunately, doing so didn't solve my problem. Then I uninstalled the driver, hoping I could reinstall it again, but to my surprise, I'm unable to find the driver to reinstall. So I'm stuck here

My HP Compaq Notebook runs on Windows 7. The Device Manager shows two network adapters, one being Broadcom 4313 802.11b/g/n and the other being a Microsoft virtual WiFi miniport adapter.
When I look at HP Support Assistant it indicates that the Microsoft adapter is not connected. I do not know if this information is or is not correct, but if it is could somebody kindly tell me :
a) Can two network adapters be operative at the same time and if they can would the Notebook work any better?
b) If the answers to (a) is yes how do I go about connecting the miniport adapter?
c) If the answer to (a) is no does it matter which of the adapters is connected?

The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.

I've followed numerous troubleshooting threads about the issue, and the problem seems to be that I'm missing the driver for the Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter. It doesn't appear in the device manager at all (I did check hidden items).

I am able to create the hotspot in the command prompt, but get the above error when running it. I thought I had something with this thread, but unlike that user, my wireless adapter DOES support hosted networks (at least according to netsh.

I, personally, don't think this is a bad thing. They are probably needed by a piece of software you use or your wifi driver. Just to make sure, run a virus scan with Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - CNET Download.com

A:Hyper V -Network miniport adapter driver cannot load error 39

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.
To add a network adapter in Hyper-v, I would like to refer to the link below for more details.

Over the past couple of days my pc has been going very slow, freezing and getting the blue screen of death. I have gone to device manager and checked that all my drivers are up to date. There appears to be a problem with WAN miniport Microsoft 6.0.6000.16518 and it will not update the drivers. Any ideas?
Thanks

Hi again

Can anyone tell me what is going on? And/or what I need to tell it when this screen comes up.

The window asks user to choose Firewall profile

Allow all
Block all
Stand alone computer

Then it wants a profile

I have Windows XP Pro on my home computer and AVG 8.5.287.

I am not networked, so I have no idea what this window is referring to.

Thanks, so much.

A:New or unassigned network detected on NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller - Packet Scheduler Miniport adapter

Okay, I'll take a guess here. Either AVG is reporting a false positive or something remote is attempting to access your PC without your permission. I believe it is more of the latter. If I am not mistaking there is a forum here that deals with removal of PC infections.
