Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have read how to disable but my question is different.  I keep getting a  "Driver support - windows checking" message when I turn on.  I just went through and did a "Update driver support" on all the items.  I came to this one "Microsoft Virtual WIFI Miniport Adapter" and it gave me a warning message - " Can't update - Unknown - can cause damage" so I ignored it.  What will happen if I ignore the message and try and update the driver support for this or is even necessary?  Thanks.

  • Hi,

    I am not sure if this “driver support” comes from windows (I guess it doesn’t), but I could give you some information about Microsoft Virtual WIFI Miniport Adapter, it is actually not a real device, it is a virtual device which could create a “hotspot” for your WIFI sharing. If it shows “working properly” under device manager, it is not necessary to worry about it.
