  • Hi,

    We can try the following methods and check the result.

    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.

    You may also download and install the latest network card driver from computer manufacturer’s website.

    You can refer to the following Microsoft article for more information.
