Change Adapter Settings

This might be happening due to incorrect registry settings. I have found a relevant discussion.

Have you checked for adapter settings?
• Go to Network & Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings
Rename new wireless connection
• Right click Wireless Network Connection > Select Properties / Sharing tab
Select the checkbox "Allow other users to connect through this computer's connection"
From the dropdown list, select you newly named network connection
• Click OK and restart.

While I hope I'm wrong this is a variant of spam the forum gets for a certain wifi software. The amount of spam made this title software non grata.
