Netsh to enable Miniport Driver

Oct 15, 2011 at 12:35 AM

I was getting ERROR: Virtual Router could not be started. Supported hardware may not have been found. Digging through code I found it was failing searching for device "microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter" which was not found on my system.

Using netsh from an Administrator command prompt I was able to enable it and turn it on.

netsh wlan set hostednetwork allow
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
