Windows 7: Virtual Wifi Adaptor issue

Virtual Wifi Adaptor issue


I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7 and am 'a newbie.'
I have followed the directions on setting up the Virtual Wifi but have an error. Is there anyway to erase what I have done and start all over again?
Keeping in mind: will starting over reset the text box so it is editable?

Thank you,

Your LAN connection may be disabling the Wireless, hence the problem. Open Wireless Network Connection (the one on the right) and go into Properties - Configure - Advanced - see any options that would disable Wireless when LAN is connected.
