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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

A:How does one change which wifi adapter the wifi miniport uses?

I tried the solution in this link: How to change default Microsoft Virtual WiFi miniport adapter?

This did not work.

I certain its a hardware issue but i was just curious. don't they both broadcast on the 802.11 band (is it called a band?)? so why wouldn't they be capable of either or? (i know bluetooth uses smaller wave lengths and wifi larger, that much i do know) it would probably be impractical to try wifi on bluetooth band as you would get severely reduced performance. but why not bluetooth on wifi band?

A:Why isnt a wifi adapter capable of bluetooth transmissions?

wouldn't work and in the US the FCC wouldn't allow it. antenna length is a function of frequency so wifi and is abt 6" bluetooth is abt 1" thats one reason wifi has a longer range

i have been through about wifi cards in the spand of laptops looking for the best range and speed without the interference i had a realtek dualband wifi card with bluetooth and i sold that to get a a Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC expecting that this would be the top of the line in wifi standards i mainly sold my realtek because a issue with buletooth if im using card (Internal) avaible the whats possible adapter+bluetooth best wifi the whats the best possible (Internal) wifi adapter+bluetooth card avaible wifi and i connect my bluetooth headset to the laptop the sound would be choppy and laggy so when i got my Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC i was amazed that this quot was quot no longer the issue i connected my HBS- and walked out my apartment and down the hall and the bluetooth was clean but it seems that now perhaps driver change the bluetooth on my Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC is also bad i cant even step feet away from my laptop without it cracking to hell at feet and not facing the laptop i disconnect it was never like that before and i know its not my headset because when i connect it to my phone its flawless and i connected another bluetooth adapter and tried and its fine the issue is that when the wifi is on theirs too much interference and yes when i connect to a g network the issue is greatly reduced but for me g is mostly not a option i was wondering if theirs a such thing as a shielded internal wifi wouldn't think so i would just love if i could use the bluetooth and the wifi flawlessly i already for another reason plan to get a Alfa AC external wifi adapter for a desktop but i would rather not use that for my laptop

We moved to a new place in December and my atheros ar5005gs WiFi adapter and WRT54GP2 don't seem to like each other any more. Everything in our new home is positioned the same as it was in the old place. I think I may have figured out that the problem might be that there are (according to Network Stumbler) at least 5 other WiFi routers on channel 6 in this neighborhood.

I need to find out how to change the channel number on my atheros ar5005gs adapter. Changing it on my router is no problem, I know how to do that.

Thanks, in advance for your help.

A:I can't figure out how to change the channel on my WiFi adapter


you only change the channel on the router, not on the NIC.

Hi !!
I am having a bluetooth adapter installed on my PC. Now I wanted to connect my Samsung HM1100 headset with it. It paired and everything but during installation of driver it says "NO DRIVER FOUND". I have tried too many times and I have also installed a bluetooth driver "SILICON WAVE BLUETOOTH DRIVER".
Actually its a dongle I'm having. So it didn't require any drivers but it won't connect to my bluetooth headset.
Help will be appreciated.

Hello I have an issue with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter Bluetooth LIT Adapter's USB Is Bluetooth OFF? Light IS When Blue - Version Class Smart Ready Adapter Model No MUA-BA Let me explain Okay I have setup my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter with the drivers for my Windows operating system USB Bluetooth Adapter's Blue Light IS LIT When Bluetooth Is OFF? Now when I plug this USB Bluetooth adapter into my USB port connector on my desktop computer it automatically lights up with a blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter itself and on my Windows system tray notification area I get the Bluetooth icon displayed as ON Then I go ahead and pair the computer and my device s example a Smartphone to connect which they do successfully When I am done using the Bluetooth technology I disconnect the Bluetooth connection from each device and then instead of leaving your USB Bluetooth adapter ON with my Windows operating system I go into my Windows system tray notification area and select Turn Adapter OFF I then get the red Bluetooth icon in my Windows system tray notification area demonstrating that my Bluetooth is indeed OFF and the Bluetooth blue light on the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter goes OFF or is not lit any longer Okay so far so good everything is normal However when I shutdown my Windows operating system and then restart the computer at some later point I notice that the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter still shows on my Windows system tray notification area as OFF okay normal BUT THE BLUE LIGHT ON THE MEDIA LINK USB BLUETOOTH ADAPTER IS NOW ON The only way I can turn off the blue light on the USB Bluetooth adapter is to manually go through the Windows system tray notification area turn ON the Bluetooth technology and then promptly turn back OFF the Bluetooth technology in order for the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light to go OFF again I find this to be a real pain and chore each time to have to go through these manual steps to turn OFF that Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light when the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light SHOULD BE OFF TO BEGIN WITH I would assume after the system re- start and leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter plugged into the USB port connector on my desktop computer if the Bluetooth technology is indeed OFF as set with the Windows operating system settings then the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter s blue light should be OFF as well BUT IT IS NOT I have no intention of consistently plugging in and out the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter when I plan on using it or not but instead leaving the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter always plugged into the my USB port connector on my desktop computer at all times and using the Windows system tray notification area s Bluetooth icon to turn ON and OFF the Bluetooth technology when needed I have contacted Medialink Mediabridge and they have informed me the rationale for this issue quot The only reason the light would be lit is if the bus power from that USB port was running I they looked for ways to manage the bus power settings of the USB host but was unable to find anywhere in the Control Panel that would allow you to adjust that particular setting quot Makes perfect sense to me that the bus power for the USB port is ALWAYS RUNNING and the computer starts the USB ports are powered and therefore the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is always lit at system start until I turn off the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter via Window 's system tray notification area Specifically the Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapter is connected to one of the USB ports on the front of my desktop computer The front desktop USB port connects to one of the USB pin connectors on my ASUS P Q motherboard Further I have an OLDER ASUS P Q motherboard that does NOT support Bluetooth as part of its BIOS settings -- PRE-Bluetooth capability Therefore I installed the software on my Windows Professional -bit and drivers that came with my Medialink USB Bluetooth Adapt...

Power down PC...while it off remove USB wifi adapter....power on PC. When PC has finished booting up, search in the uninstall programs list for any software related Netgear and uninstall it. Reboot and start the process again.

According to the system requirements for that device, it does not support windows 10, which may be you issue.

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.

This should then allow Windows to set the required bindings.

Hi, My laptop has a very weak wifi detection. Only when the wifi signal is very strong can it detect the wifi. I tried contacting HP regarding the same. They said it could be a loose connection with the wifi antenna. I have been waiting for the custumer service in my area to contact me(like HP promised!!!) for quite a long time now . Now I am in urgent need to get this fixed. I was wondering if an external wifi adapter would solve this issue. Mine is a Windows 10 laptop. Model no: ab030tx (pavilion). If an external adapter works, what would you suggest? (I am confused as a lot of products available in market only convert the laptop to a hotspot)

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.

So, there are many articles out there that will show you how to use cmd prompt to create a wifi hotspot (eg: this article Internet Connection Sharing - Create WiFi HotSpot)

However, is there anyway to do this with TWO separate wifi adapters? That is, use one adapter to connect to your router and the other to act as the router? Some articles seem to indicate this is the ideal setup but no one seems to specify how to control which wifi adapter is used to create the wifi hostpot in command prompt.

Thanks for any help.

If I can get the basics to work, the next step is to try to integrate a VPN so that I can basically use my PC as a VPN router (but with no physical ethernet connection).

Actually my wifi adapter can catch all other wifi signal except my wifi router.

A:my notebook wifi adapter don't get my wifi router

There are several resons.1. The wifi signal might be too weak at the point where the computer is.2. Other device radiation/signals might be blocking it.3. Your router signal might be hodden (check EWS of router).4. Signal broadcasting might have been turned off on router. Since other signals are found on the computer, there shouldnt be a issue with your couputer.

can you connect the pc directly to the router with a cable and then
Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file to the faulty PC and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

I got a Bluetooth USB adapter (model number is ES-388, no brand) so that I could use my Bluetooth A2DP headset with my Windows 7 PC, but I can't seem to get it to work. Windows does not recognize the device (the adapter), and won't activate it.

Is there a driver that I need to install? The adapter itself came with nothing...

Bluetooth is the easiest (read "least hassle") way of transferring data to your netbook from an Android device. I got a "nano" Bluetooth adapter for my Toshiba laptop, it worked nicely. It sticks out approximately 3/8" (7mm) and was under 10 USD.

If you don't want to go that route, then you can use sync software. I use My Phone Explorer (free). Once you have it set up, you can access your Android device as if it were a networked PC on your home LAN.

Another alternative is to use a USB cable. Set your Android device to Disk Drive under Connect to PC. I'm not 100% sure, but I think that this allows access to data on the SD Card only. Not a problem on my phone as it saves pictures and videos to a folder on the SD Card.

I just got a Palm Centro and conveniently (not really) the usb cable to connect to my phone to computer isn't compatable with 64 bit systems. So I was informed that I should simply buy a Bluetooth adapter to "hotsync" my phone..blah blah blah.

after buying the bluetooth I realized that my computer was not recognizing the new hardware b/c IT isn't compatable with, guessed it...64 bit os...and then they say I have to buy another one. Now, I guess this seems like more complaining than a question, but my level of frustration is immense, so I apologize, but does anyone know a way to fix this issue short of the obvious(buying another flippin adapter)? I mean, is Kensington so cheap and lazy that they cannot get their "experts" to write a patch or update for patrons with a 64 bit system?

A:Bluetooth adapter blues

A cable wouldn't have anything to do with 64-bit compatibility. That lies with the device, not the connection method. If the phone doesn't support connectivity with a 64-bit OS, a Bluetooth adapter isn't going to make a difference.

A:Problem with bluetooth adapter

Welcome Bluking.

First thing to try, I suggest you hold the left shift key down and right click on a file, then check the Sent To menu to see if there is a Bluetooth option.


Very quickly, check the send to folder to see if there is a Bluetooth shortcut.

To do this, click the start globe/button and input the following line into that little search box at the bottom of the menu - replacing the word USER with your username.


E.g., if my username was Seb9, I would put:


Tap the enter key and a new window should open, with shortcuts in it.


If you do not see a Bluetooth one and you have bluetooth software installed, I suggest you run a repair on the installation, just as an idea.

To do this, you'll need to go to your control panel, go to "Uninstall a program", find the bluetooth software and click repair (or uninstall and reinstall).


Another idea is to check the Bluetooth settings for a setting to create a shortcut in the sent to folder.


With your YouTube issue, hopefully closing and reopening the browser and/or system restart should fix that one.

I have a mac 2013(early) running win10 (obviously). I have my TV with a auxiliary port. I want to know if it is possible to use some software to turn my laptop into an adapter between my Bluetooth headphones and the TV. I have heard that if the volume is too loud from the TV going into a auxiliary port, it could fry something. I feel like this is something that could be doable, and software exists. But I cannot find any, and I really want to use my Bluetooth headphones so no one can hear my TV when playing games and such.

A:software to turn mac into bluetooth adapter?

If you are using the tv as an external monitor as well as for watching broadcasts you would simply mute that if not Bluetooth capable and then use either the head phone jack on the laptop itself or see the Bluetooth app configure the head set there not through the tv. Does the headset happen to have a usb dongle by chance?

On a quick Bing search for looking a guide for seeing Bluetooth installed on 10 you will also find instructions on how to see Bluetooth already present and accounted for enabled on 10 rather easily. The following was quickly found from the Help From Microsoft pages in the Bing search results itself with an embedded video short.

To connect your Bluetooth headset, speaker, or headphones to your Windows 10 PC, you'll need to pair the device first.

Turn on your Bluetooth device and make it discoverable. The way you make it discoverable depends on the device. Check the device info or website to find out more.On the taskbar, select the action center icon, and make sure Bluetooth is turned on.In action center, select Connect, then pick your device.Follow any additional instructions. Otherwise, you're done.

I am not sure if I have this 'USB host controller' installed. Any ideas or suggestions ?

It also did not come with a CD.

Much appreciated.

Go to the manufacturers site and download the Bluetooth software so you have control of turning it on and off etc.

Okay, so recently my Bluetooth adapter stopped receiving signals, at least form what I can tell. According to the operating system everything is working fine, all the drivers are installed etc. but when I try to connect my Bluetooth mouse it never picks up the signal for it, or my phone. The oddest part is it's only in Windows 7 it all works fine and dandy in XP.

I never changed the default network card ever since I bought the pc, and I always used a dongle to use Bluetooth, but now I recently found out that my networkcard also has bluetooth. So, to my understanding, I shouldn't need the dongle at all.Although here's the thing. Ever since I bought it I have found no option to turn the bluetooth on, other than the dongle settings of course. And whats even weider (at least to me), that in the adapter settings it is called 'Ethernet 2', as shown here:The second line says: 'Networkcable not connected' Is this how it should be? My device manager shows the PAN Network Adapter, and it says it has drivers installed, so I don't know what I would be doing wrong. Laptop is out of warranty, so sending it to HP is not really an option.

A:how to turn on bluetooth adapter in windows 7

If you have a laptop, there should be a button you can hit. The other option would be to find it in the device manager, right click on it, and hit enable.

I have an Insignia USB Bluetooth adapter plugged into a USB port on my WinXP w/SP3 PC and have the drivers installed, the Bluetooth headphones are discovered and connected, but it won't route sound through the USB adapter. I booted up iTunes and WMP and played music but no sound is forthcoming.

Does anybody have an idea as to getting audio routed through the USB adapter?

A:USB Speaker & USB Bluetooth Adapter Not Working

Connect the devices, one at a time. Then go to the Device Manager and display the USB section. There will probably be an Unknown device shown. If there is, RIGHT click on the entry to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall" (do not uninstall any drivers). Disconnect the device from the PC after the Uninstall. Then do the same thing for the other USB device. Restart the PC and then connect one of the devices and Windows should detect it as "new hardware" and install it. If not, run sfc /scannow (run it 3 times) and see if it finds any problem from whatever you may have deleted.

I used to use my Turtle Beach PX5s with my laptop. They used to work just fine. I reconnected them to the PS3 one day and after going back to the PC the microphone no longer registers sound on the PC.

Everything is as it should be. All drivers have been reinstalled multiple times, all settings have been checked and double checked. Nothing stands out as abnormal except the sound meter next to the bluetooth headset under audio devices (where it is set as default device) does not register any noise.

The headset is working fine with the ps3 and my phone and I can hear my voice through the headset as I talk, but the PC cannot hear me at all.

I have been through Turtle Beach tech support and Targus tech support and have gotten nowhere. It's been incredibly aggravating and I hope some one here might be able to shed some light.

Whenever I have my bluetooth enabled and am connected to a device, the connection to my wifi network is broken. It says that it is unable to find a network to connect to. However, when bluetooth is disabled, this problem immediately goes away. Any ideas as to what is going on? I've had Windows troubleshoot my network adapter, but it couldn't find any problems. I am using a HP Pavilion dm4t running Windows 8.

A:Wifi & Bluetooth

Sure sounds like the Bluetooth is interfering with the Wi-Fi. It should not. Are both integrated? One card that does both? Has this occurred since day one of a new PC? Still under warranty?

For example it'impossible to have a call with my bluetooth headphone. I tried to update the driver but I've had the same problem. Is there a solution for this problem? I'm sorry for my English.

Hello friendly Techguy community.

I have this fancy Bluetooth keyboard with a built in mouse pad for my stationary desktop computer, and I am trying to use it over a range that it can't particularly handle.

My question is there a way to possible solve this issue by sending the signal over my wifi router? such as an adapter set that I can be attached to the sender and receiver of my keyboard?

Any other suggestions to solve this problem are also welcomed.

Hi!I just reinstalled Windows 7 and can not get Bluetooth to work. There are 3 different setups at the drivers page and not one of them is working. Also, if I use the Hardware Vendor Detection, it does not even show me the device. The thing is, about half an hour ago, I was running Linux Mint and it worked fine. So there definately is a Bluetooth Adapter in this machine.Can anybody help? Thanks.

Well, if anyone else runs into this problem, just install the "LaunchManager Applikation" by Dritek, this will also enable the FN keys. After that, you can enable the BT-adpater via FN+F3.  gl hf

Hello I just installed a Bluetooth USB adapter that is supposed to automatically install the driver in Win when plugged in This did not happen It showed the device as unknown and quot no driver available quot I know my system is updated and scanned for system issues I was then able to install the driver from the CD The device showed properly Anyway I have questions into the manufacturer but there are some questions I could get answered better here Note that I have had Bluetooth with send/rec? new and Issues driver--no Adapter problems trying to pair the Win laptop with another laptop when testing I will be testing it with other devices as I have time My questions Once Bluetooth is installed in Windows is there supposed to be a Bluetooth icon in the Control Panel Also unlike where I've seen it on other systems with Bluetooth why does the menu that Issues with new Bluetooth Adapter and driver--no send/rec? appears when I right-click the Bluetooth icon in the notification area not have options to send or receive files Is this because a device Issues with new Bluetooth Adapter and driver--no send/rec? compatible with that feature is not connected via BT or is there a driver issue etc Also if I want to reinstall a driver program for it should I just uninstall it as normal first Control Panel gt Programs and Features gt Choose gt Uninstall It is listed as WIDCOMM Bluetooth Software The driver is apparently Broadcom Any reason to do a system restore as I haven't noted any others issues as a result of the above Thanks

A:Issues with new Bluetooth Adapter and driver--no send/rec?

Still testing some devices. But I reinstalled the software and driver. It seems to work now. My question about the software was answered: Just a Broadcom design in software that could use improvement, not an error.

Though I do have another question if anyone knows the answer to this: When I use the Broadcom software that get installed to add a device (right-click the Bluetooth icon in notification area) and choose "Add a device," the "Windows 8" style PC Settings app opens (Devices section). When I add a device through the Win 8 app-style PC Settings>Devices as just noted, it adds the device to the DEVICE list in the Control Panel, and the Bluetooth window does not show any devices. Note: This is Win 8, not 8.1, so there is no separate Bluetooth section in the Win 8 app-style PC Settings. Is there anything I'm missing about the Win 8 version of adding a device? Any way to have control of the added devices from that page (PC Settings>Devices)?

Also, if I want to get the control panel for "controlling" the bluetooth devices (connect, disconnect, send, etc.), I have to go through the Control Panel and Devices and find the device name (like headphones or a phone). From the Win 8 app-style PC Settings>Devices, the only "option" is to remove the listed device. Again, this is a bit annoying as the software opens to this page.

And I understand you can add devices from the Bluetooth Devices (Control Panel location). However, there isn't a Bluetooth icon in my Control Panel, and I found Brink's instructions after pairing.

Though, thanks again to Brink, I did add a shortcut to the Bluetooth folder (control panel version as I still haven't upgraded to 8.1). However, as previously noted, the devices paired (using the method above) do not appear there, but in the "regular" Devices window of the control panel, if I'm making sense.
