Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport Adaptor is gone RRS feed

  • Question

  • noticed that a few days ago, this virtual adapter disappeared from the network interface. I never used it but I'd just like to know why it's not there anymore. I think it happened when I recently switched my LAN from "user account auth" to Windows managed homegroups, could be related...

     Anyway, a few comments about the use of this virtual adapter would be appreciated too. There's a lot of info from people who don't seem to be sure what it's for exactly. So, is that to connect to several networks at the same time, using just one "real" wifi adapter, is that to connect other wi-fi devices (is then ICS needed too...) etc... thanks ;)
