mv wifi miniport adapter RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't know much about computers but from everything Ive read you can uninstall or go to cmd and enter codes to get this adapter to stop working.  I went to device manager and disabled it.  When I go to system information, components, network and look at my adapters it is enabled.  I started cmd, followed instructions here and disabled it.  After reboot I couldn't connect to the internet.  It said correct driver not installed.  I thought you could connect to the network from the laptop without this adapter.  Am I misunderstanding something?  Can someone please help?  Like I said, I know nothing about computers.  I just want to connect to our network and internet without using this.

  • Some type of connection from the computer to the internet must be active for you to access the internet from the computer.

    You may use either a wireless, WiFi, connection or you may use a hardwired connection which usually a CAT5 cable that looks similar to a telephone cable.

  • Hi,

    Based on your description, it seems that there is something wrong with the driver.

    Have you updated the driver to the latest version? If not, please try it.

    In addition, as Rick said, if you want to access the internet, several type of connections should be active.

    Best Regards,
