You would need to make sure that the driver for this connection is a Windows certified WHQL driver, this will ensure that it installs the Msoft virtual WiFi miniport which is what Windows uses to set up the hosted wireless network.

When you install the correct driver you will see the Msoft virtual driver there in Device Manager.
