Finding Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter Update

by ClarityDude / September 29, 2011 8:20 AM PDT

Just purchased an Asus K532-BBR9 laptop. Everything works fine, except on college campus the internet is very slow, and disconnects every few minutes.

My fellow students laptops do not seem to have this problem.

I figured it may be a driver issue, so I am trying to update everything.

Under Network Adapters in Device Manager. The Microsoft Virtual WiFI Miniport Adapter is not up to date when I do a driver update scan.

Then it says "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software.." with options to install anyways.

I tried to manually find the driver online to verify if it is safe but could not.

All advice is welcome!
