Hi DR.Abhishek Rajsingh,

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community forums.

From the problem description, I see that you have an issue with Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi Miniport Adapter driver.

I can imagine the inconvenience you have experienced. We are here to help and guide you in the right direction.

The Microsoft virtual Wi-Fi miniport adapter is a new feature in Windows 7, Wireless Hosted Network:

Refer to the link:

Method 1:
I would suggest you to try updating the Microsoft virtual
Wi-Fi miniport adapter from device manager.

Follow these steps:

a. Click on start button and type device manager.
b. Select device manager from the control panel list.
c. From the device list, locate the adapter.
d. Right-Click on it and select “Properties”.
e. Go to driver tab and click on update.

See if it can find a new driver.

In addition to updating the miniport adapter, it will require you to download the latest driver for your network card.

Method 2:
If the issue still occurs, you may perform system restore to undo the changes on system, when everything was working fine. Follow the steps in the link:

“System Restore: frequently asked questions”
You may also download and install the latest network card driver from computer manufacturer’s website.

Let us know the status of the issue after performing the troubleshooting steps. If you need any further assistance or information about Windows, I will be glad to help you. We, at Microsoft strive towards excellence.

The thing is that i just want to create a hotspot (non Ad-hoc) to share net to my android device. connectify is not supportive in AP mode ( may be due to missing virtual adapter).

I have found the miniport is in Windows 7 but not 8.  I believe it is required to get WIDI to function.

Method 1: I can't update driver of device which doesn't exist on my system (I have Intel WiFi 4965AG, but 'Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport' does not seem to exist).
Method 2: It is newly installed system (Windows 7 32-bit) with up-to-date drivers, so there are no relevant restore points.
