I did that already to no avail.
I am not sure at this point what the Operating System you have is but in case it is Windows 8.1, this is not visible so you will need to select the option “Show Hidden Devices”.
If you have tried this already, let me know the following:
- What the Operating System installed is?
- What was the previous wireless adapter installed?
- What is the computer brand and model?
I looked under hidden devices and it's not there.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.
My previous adapter is a Centrino 2230. I reinstalled it and Virtual Microsoft Wifi Miniport showed up on the old one.
My laptop is a HP Pavilian dv7
I understand. Can you verify with the Computer Manufacture if the wireless card you are using can be integrated and fully compatible with your system?
The driver package for the old adapters is the same as the driver package for the new adapter so it should not be a driver problem.
I looked on HP's site to see if there drivers supported the 6235 and it did so I bought it. It works great except I can't create my own hotspot without the Virtual Wi-Fi adapter.
Try disabling it by typing on the CMD this:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow
After that try enabling again:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode= allow
