Virtual Wifi Miniport, dhcp question.

Hello, I have virtual wifi miniport active through nesth, I use it to share internet to my Nintendo 3ds but I can not share it with my Nintendo Ds, after reading and found that the virtual miniport wifi dhcp not active, I wonder if there is any way to enable the miniport dhcp, I have been sharing internet through mac OS x Snow Leopard but I work on both Windows and Mac OS, while I like to play while completing the build process.

Any help is truly appreciated.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

You should be able to turn on DHCP the same way that you can on a regular NIC. Go to the Network and Sharing Center, then look left to "Change Adaptor Settings" and click that, highlight and right click the Virtual adaptor and choose properties, then right click TCP/IPv4, choose properties again, make sure that the upper dot is set to "Obtain an IP address Automatically, same for DNS. :)

Using Windows 7, my wireless works great in the vicinity of the router, but slows down and will not load some sites when 30+ feet away from the router. The signal strength is excellent. Any ideas?
