Windows 7: Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

09 Jun 2012   #21

98SE/XP/windows7 ultimate 32bit

"netsh wlan stop hostednetwork"
"netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow".
this works fine!

BUT How do i revert it back ?

1-i tried "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow" -the cmd was fine.
2-and then "netsh wlanstart hostednetwork"-this cmd gave me an error:
C:\Users\Amir>netsh wlan start hostednetwork
The hosted network couldn't be started.
The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested opera

EDIT - in order to revert, the cmd is one only:
"netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NameOfNetwork key=StrongPassword".
