Windows 7: Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

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?

Okay you may need to check around your router to first see if there are any mirrors really close. These can deflect the wireless rays therefore decreasing signal strength.

Your second option if this fails, is too purchase a WIFI-Repeater or booster.

I have added a webpage below and if you wish too purchase any of these simply google them (Maybe amazon, ebay etc.).

Hope this helps you

Check or change your wireless channel.... sometimes there is an interference from other wireless equipments.

Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter....???
I found this quaint sounding entry in Device Manager (among network adapters) with driver dated 2006. Recommended update online search found one update but with a red lettered warning that I should not install it. So I cancelled. What is this device? And do I need it?
