Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

by L M Birk / February 1, 2013 8:51 AM PST

I continually lose connectivity. Have to right click on modem connectivity icon in task bar & select Troubleshoot. Problem found = Adapter Not Connected or similar advisory. I then select "Chose This Fix & am immediately reconnected but this is rediculous. Don't believe it has anything to do with my AT&T Moden. But did read some undesirable things about allowing connection to the "Microsoft Vrtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" when it first appeared so I deliberately chose to disable it. Never knew if this Adapter connection is required or optional but beginning to think my disabling it may be the cause of my connectivity problems.
Anyone have the answer to this one? Thanks in advance.
