I'am having trouble with virtual wifi miniport adapter. I want to take advantage of this new feature in windows 7 so i've downloaded connectify and virtual router to give it a try and it really works great and acts like a real hardware. But i discovered something wrong that everytime i change my mac address in the device manager the microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter is being disabled and cannot function or start and also i cannot use my connectify and virtual router with it, but when i put my real mac address back its functioning properly again. Please help i need a solution for this kind of problem i often change my mac address for security and browsing reason specially in public.

Problem With Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter Driver

Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter has a problem with driver. Reinstall driver, not fixed. Windows 7 home premium 64. New acer 5532 trying to connect to a wireless hp 1022nw. Wireless internet was set up without a hitch. Other computers connect are xp and no problem exists. Wondering if this is really a driver issue or compatibility / hardware issue. One of the automatic responses also stated the driver was reinstalled and did not fix the issue. Windows update stated to never install drivers (?) And issue was not present. A secondary and possible related problem stated in trouble shoot was "problem with pnp devices, detected.

Virtual Wifi Miniport Adaptor Driver Problem

I have a new packard bell easynote tj61 with in-built webcam, which worked for a while, and then came this error. When i turn on the laptop and it boots up with windows7, i get an error window stating "please turn on the camera". When i close this window and try to turn on the webcam, the error message just re-appears. I have taken a look at my device manager and found the little yellow triangle with explanation mark next to one of the network adaptors, specifically, the 'microsoft virtual wifi miniport adaptor'. I have clicked on this tried to install the driver but it reckons i have the correct driver installed. However it also tells me the "device is not working properly because windows cannot load the drivers required for this device (code31)"

The driver file details are c:windowssystem32driversvwifimp.sys
And driver version is 6. 1. 7600. 16385.

Hope this is enough info for anyone to be able to help. I am assuming the webcam and driver issue are co-related.

Microsoft Virtual Wireless Adapter

I have a dell vostro 1400 notebook with a broadcom wlan 1390 installed. Recently, i have upgraded the wlan driver to version 5. 60. 18 using the upgrade provided by dell bearing id no r242438. After the upgrade, i have confronted the following problem. The name of the adapter has changed in programs like stopcut and netcut. In other words, when i try to access the drop list to choose the name of my network adapter, i find the name of my ethernet adapter mentioned correctly, microsoft virtual adapter mentioned correctly, while my wireless adapter is labeled as microsoft instead of dwlan 1390 as it used to display before.

The adapter is displayed with its right label (dwlan 1390) in the device manager and in the adapters list in the network connections window. However, whenever i use a third party application to access my adapters list, the label i got for my wireless adapter is microsoft and not dwlan 1390. I rolled back to my old driver and i get the same result.

Update Disabling Intel Wifi Adapter

I recently purchased a vaio laptop for the widi capabilities. Out of the box it worked as advertised, but after a round of various updates from microsoft and sony, the widi becomes disabled. The message that appears is: my intel wifi technology disabled, please restart your computer. Another message that appears is: my intel wifi technology: adapter not found. I've poured over all the vendor community postings (intel, netgear, sony) regarding this issue but no one seems to have come up with a solution.

The only method for recovery is to do a complete system restore which puts everything back to factory settings. Once i do that, it works for a little bit until the updates download again. I've tried turning off the auto updates and i've ensured that all the latest drivers were installed (even after doing a complete system restore) but nothing seems to prevent the adapter from becoming disabled. I don't have any issues with the wifi, only the widi. This issue seems to be affecting all brands with widi capabilities. I'm not sure if it's affecting only intel i5s or both i5s and i7s. Any one have any other suggestions?

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Problem

I'm running a 3 month old
Acer ax1301-b9082 with win7 home premium 64-bit

I went into my devices and printers to make sure that the new printer i set up was not showing any issues. It was fine. However, i did notice that my tower had an issue ! So i clicked on it and troubleshooted it and it came back with. There is a problem with your microsoft teredo tunneling adapter.

So, i tried to retrieve a driver from the backups i made the day i bought the computer, that didn't work. The computer is already set to look for additional driver info online, that didn't work and it didn't find any driver fix. I went back into my device manager looking for the problem and found the ! Issue, clicked on the driver tab and tried to update the driver but it came back with a return that my driver was up to date and working fine. Which obviously isn't the case.

I did several searches for the microsoft tunneling adapter but didn't yield any results, let alone a driver i could find. The path to find the actual problem is

Computer>windows>system32>drivers>tunnel.sys

Anyone have any clue how i can find a fix for this issue?

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Not Working

I read the thread regarding microsoft teredo tunneling adapter not working. I too have that problem and it isn't resolved. I noticed that many of you seem to have zonealarm which i also have. Check to see if the following file is on your pc: c:program files (x86)one labsone alarmdiagnosticsosrbang.exe. This file is a crash on demand program and should be deleted immediately. I have two pcs with zone alarm and it was on both (one windows 7 and one xp). I previously had (at separate times) avg antivirus, eset antivirus, and ca antivirus and none of these found the file. I now have vipre antivirus and it blocked the file and eliminated it.

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Has A Driver Problem

Message 1. "Device driver software was not successfully installed" - x failed message 2. "Troubleshooting has completed" - "microsoft teredo tunneling adapter has a driver problem". My first time here. Perhaps i can learn something. Well, message 1. -  I got when i attempted to update the driver for the same adapter. I then got message 2 after attempting to troubleshoot the problem. I initially had issues with the netgear infamous adapter wg111v2, which i couldn't get to work, uninstall or work or install.

Crazy. Well i reinstalled win7, plugged it in, and the software downloaded immediately and the adapter seemed to be working fine (for the first time since win7 installation), based on the bottom right hand icon's confirmation. Until i removed the network cable. Now it doesn't work despite apparent software confirmation.

No browser loads, only with a cable. My search online seems to suggest that it is down to this tunneling adapter. It seems to be at fault. I know for sure that it's not the router as i have wifi on my hd2 from it, and win7 tells me that the adapter is working. So my question is does win7 just not accept netgear's adapter or is it the teredo tunneling adapter's fault. Oh my router is dg834gv3.

Webcam And Wifi Not Working

I just bought my msi laptop about two months ago. I'm not techie and i'm not good in troubleshooting. My webcam was working fine not until it shows that the device cannot be found. I tried uninstalling/installing the drivers but it will not work. As i tried installing it, it will no longer show in the installed products/programs in the program and features.

My problem with my wifi started when i first started using a broadband stick. I tried searching for a connection but it will only show the broadband stick even if it was not inserted.

Atheros 5007 Wifi Driver

I need a driver that will work on windows 7 x64. I tried all the ones on google. Even tried the toshiba driver for 2010. The xp driver nor the toshiba win 7 driver do not install, no matter what. I have the vista . Inf but it's not an exe. If someone knows where to put the inf files i can do it. This thing has been a pain in the butt since i bought it. I used it on vista, with a major headache to get it working. Why is atheros so difficult? Forcing us to use european drivers.

I had a broadcom wifi pci card & that installed no problem. I needed to take it out for my mom to use, but that left me with no wireless option now. I mean i can just boot to my xp drive but then you don't have the direct x 11 & the video card isn't as awesome because it wasn't made for xp. I may be wrong on the "ag", the print wore off & i think that's what it was.

Bsod From Wakeup When Wifi Turned Off

I've been getting the bsod other people have, but mine has a definite cause. It will only happen on wake-up from sleep/hibernate (not sure about power-up) when the wifi is turned off. I have a laptop, so there's a little button you can slide left or right to turn the wifi on or off. If the wifi is turned off, but i manage to switch it on before the login screen comes up, i'm ok. But if i forget or i'm too late turning it on, the bsod appears.

I have an hp pavilion dv2610us with windows 7 pro x64. I ran the 64 bit version of the release candidate, which had the exact same problem. I thought it would get fixed with the final version, but i guess not. Is the fix for this a certain wifi driver? If so, anyone know which one?

Update Blocks Wifi Connection

So i bought a brand new computer with windows 7, bought a new wireless adapter (netgear wna1000) downloaded the newest available windows 7 compatible drives from a friends computer and hey i can connect. I turn my computer off after updating windows and now my wireless connection has "limited connectivity" which means that i can't use my network. The only answer i've found to this on my own and after countless hours on the phone with netgear and geek squad is to run a system restore back before the updates are installed and never turn off my computer. I know this isn't good for it. Does anyone have any solutions? Oh i'm running on a wep connection.

Net Security Key Wifi Connection

With brand new laptop  with windows 7 i can not connect to home net(via router d-link). Other laptops (with xp) after configurations were connected with internet without any problem. Now to connect  to the net i am asked to type in the "net security key" and i do not know where to find  it. Before. i.e with others laptops i was not asked for any key. I am mad, i lost already the whole day trying what i was able to do-with no result.

I am a simple user, not a programmer and i expected easy work with new laptop. From the answers i found in the forum i understand very little as the advices seems to be addressed to the people much more advanced in cs than me.

Win 7 Recreates Deleted Wifi Profiles

I'm running windows 7 64 bit. I have two wireless routers. My wireless n router a linksys wag160n is the default router with wpa2 enabled. I have a wireless n dongle. The room the computer is in appears to be on the end of the range and keeps loosing connection, however when i implemented a netgear 802. 11g router, it can connect to this quite happily. The problem is that windows 7 insists on reconnecting to the linksys every time it finds it.

I moved the profile down the list in the network wifi management console and windows 7 keeps bumping it back to the top. I deleted the profile and windows recreated it. I tried putting dummy settings in and windows 7 rewrites it. I tried renaming it and windows leaves the renamed profile in place and creates the old one again.

The only way i can now think round this is to change the ssid on the linksys and change all the pcs that connect to it successfully. I'm also thinking of scrapping the linksys as it doesn't perform as well as an older router and it keeps dropping the adls link. I don't want to use the netgear for security reasons. Any advice before i throw the linksys away?

Cannot Install Belkin Usb Wifi Drivers

I have recently purchased a belkin surf+ b300 f7d2101ed and i'm not able to install it on my windows 7 (32bit) pro system. I've only just installed windows 7 so its a fresh installation.
I install the software included and i keep getting a pop up balloon saying that the driver has not installed properly.

I have tried going into the device manager and the device is listed under network controllers, but not but not as the device name but "connect usb wireless" (or something along those lines).
I have then tried to manually update the driver and specifying the cd drive to look for driver. It sees the driver, attempts to install it and then i get a screen saying that the driver did not install properly as it could not find the file specified.

I have also tried downloading the latest install program from the belkin website, but still cannot get the device to work. Does anyone know how i install this device?

Wifi Usb Adapters No Network Detection

I brought these two usb adapters (tp link tl-wn722n and level one wua-0614) after i upgraded from vista to windows 7 ultimate 32 bit.
 
I downloaded the latest soft and drivers from the company web sites, where it say that it supports windows 7. The drivers are installed correctly, under device manager everything is o. K, but in both the usd adapters , they fail to detect any network signals, as if there are none hot spots or wifi routers around, although we have more than 10 wifi hot-spots around.

When i check the troubleshooter, it says that there is some problem in the driver, but under the driver option , there is no problem with the driver. I have a d-link g132 same usb wifi adapter that works fine. I tested these two adapters on 3 different windows 7 notebooks and at different locations but with the same results.
