Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. This device is just a virtual device and it should not affect connecting the wireless network with the physical wireless adapter... Go to the Device Manager Click on Network Adapters to check which one you have as there are two on the HP Website .. Then download the one you need ..

Hi there .. Miniport Adapteris not really hardware. It is Windows software for emulating the absence of a connection on most client systems.. Are you having difficulties with your connection ?
