Hi Friends,

I am not able to connect with internet in my laptop. I have windows 7 64 bit Operating system, installation and setup went well. But why I am getting this error. Thinking of any drivers issue so checked and re-install all drivers. And also I tries the common method of restarting, but no luck. Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

For a common reason you have experience this problem. That is Hosted Network problem which is out of date wireless driver. Usually Windows does a poor work of keeping drivers up-to-date, so need to update your driver manually. Contact with your router/modem’s manufacturer.

You can diagnose Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi Adapter that also might occur this issue.

1. Go to Start menu >> Control Panel >> Network and Internet >> Network and Sharing Center.

2. From the right pane, select “Change adapter settings”.

3. In the list of adapter, find out if Microsoft Virtual Wi-Fi Miniport Adapter is enabled. If not, right-click and select “Enable”.

Now your problem should go out of your way to enjoyment.

That is not directly a problem with the laptop but with the wireless adapter or device installed on it. If you said you have already reinstalled all the drivers on your computer and the problem still persists, check if you have already updated the driver for your wireless adapter after it was reinstalled.

Also, since you are using 64-bit Windows 7, make sure your driver is 64-bit because a driver is not an ordinary application that you can easily install. Though you can install 32-bit applications on your 64-bit Windows 7, you cannot treat a 32-bit driver as a 32-bit application because they are different.

Since you did not mention the brand of your laptop, visit the manufacturer’s website using your web browser and download the latest driver for your Wi-Fi adapter depending on your laptop’s model. You can also try the Laptone Wireless USB Adapter Network which offers 150 Mbps high speed transfer rate.
