Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter Driver Download For Sony Vaio Install Update
How do I permanantly remove this pos from my laptop? About the Wireless Hosted Network. This device is just a virtual device and it should not affect connecting the wireless network with the physical wireless adapter.
However, if you would like to disable it, please use the command in above article. I've been asked by a Support Engineer at the Microsoft Answers forum to re-create my problem here within the TechNet forum, because it is more complex than what's typically handled there.
The thread my latest reply in the Microsoft Answers forum is located here: If I change the power saving option "Password protection on wakeup" from "Require a password on recommended " to "Don't require a password", everything is fine concerning the time period it takes to establish the WLAN connection after wakeup that means, even without the NETSH commands as described in this thread.
So, from my point of view, it seems to be something related to security probably in conjunction with this hosted network stuff. Disabling "Password protection on wakeup" is not a solution at all for me personally, as I'm on the road with my notebook quite often, and I want to be sure that the data on my notebook isn't accessible without unlocking the screen, in case the device would get stolen or I would loose it somehow Any professional input from somebody at Microsoft to finally get a solution for this would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know if this seems too obvious a fix to have actually worked, but I simply went into Device Manager and disabled the virtual miniport adapter. I was often getting dropped off my wifi for no apparent reason, so did some poking around and found the MS device along with my Broadcom wifi adapter.
Simply disabled the MS device and I haven't had an issue so far, and no dropped wifi. Creating the batch file and keeping in the start up location will avoid running these commands manually on bootup.
Trying the command prompt version now, perhaps it'll last longer. This virtial thing really affects my connection. However, with your procedure Virtual Wifi has completely and definitely disappeared, which was the initial question of this discussion. I am having more than WAN Mini port device under network adapter.
I have read it all. It's gone, and when I put the laptop in sleep and wake it up, the inherrant wifi is on and all works well.

Thursday, February 16, I had that problem on another computer too.
It took me a couple of tries to get this to work. Monday, April 2, I found the manual for your laptop, and low and behold that laptop may have a wwan connection used for connecting to cell phone towers for an internet connection. Anyways disable that and run the commands I gave you.
If the command doesn't work try "wwan" or "wwlan" instead of "wlan". That's just my 2 cents. The manual is here ftp: Read pages 73 to Tuesday, April 3, 3: Ive been having an issue with this virtual miniport adapter for weeks now. I got a new wi-fi router and my wi-fi service was really bad. Ive been searching for the answer for the bad sevice for weeks. Ive even tried doing a factory restore and still within a few hours I get the virtual miniport back on my adapters page.
My service provider even asked me if I was using 2 wi-fi adapters at home because the said my wi-fi was being split by the two wifi adapters. So if anyone is having this issue use this fix. Thank you I would have continued with the bad service thinking it was my brand new computer if it wasnt for this.

Second, the answer provided by test tyler actually works. I followed the instructions given by test tyler. After days of intermittent internet access, hours of following other solutions on the internet for a Atheron AR wireless adapter the solution test tyler provider worked for almost a minute before I lost the Internet connection.
I am positive that the latest Windows 7 update caused my loss of Internet. The problem is NOT with my wireless card. The problem is with the addition of the Microsoft Wifi Miniport. I am now ready to switch from all Microsoft products -- all of them. I have used computers since there was only DOS. This "critical update" stopped my business in its tracks.
I have decided that any operating system associated with Microsoft is just another experiment with the victims paying the price again and again. No, I don't have a virus but how are we ever percent sure. Yes I have the latest driver -- according to Windows. Yes my Wifi is turned on. Thank you test tyler. Although your solution did not solve my problem, it works which is more than I can say for Microsoft Windows. I have a high regard and respect for the effort of the workers who I suspect have a greater vision than I can see.
All I know is that I looked very stupid in from of my customers when my business laptop refused to work with my wireless network. My laptop is now completely useless.
It is just a hard drive. I am beyond belief that a company with a poor product keeps getting richer. After a short nap I have to return to work and I will start the process of switching to another operating system that has better customer service and quits giving excuses and stops blaming the victim.
Again, sorry for the venting. Thank you for your patience.

That's how you do it without getting grease under your finger nails: Proposed as answer by Youri van Dijk Thursday, January 23, Sunday, December 29, 2: Sunday, March 9, 1: Sunday, March 23, 5: Wednesday, May 28, 5: Doesnt work, it re-instals on start up.

Please identify your notebook. Saying you have a dm3 notebook is a bit like saying you have a car and it is a Chevrolet. Remove the battery and find the product name and product number. Include all alphanumeric characters and post it in your thread. You will need to look in the Device Manager and state which wireless notebook adapter is installed. The diagnostic that you are concerned about is actually really nothing to worry about.
