Error "please enable your wifi adapter"

Dear Users,

You may get this error in the following scenarios

  • When your wifi is turned off
  • When your drivers dosent support virtualization . So please try to find the latest drivers which can support virtualization.

How to check if your drivers support virtualization ??

There are two ways to check if your wifi card and drivers support virtualization 
  1. Go to help in my tool and click on check button. If it says "Yes" it means it supports  virtualization and "No" means it doesn't support  virtualization.
  2. If my tool says nothing or if you want to check directly without intervention of tool please run your command prompt in Administrator mode and run the following command "netsh wlan show drivers" and check for "Hosted network supported : Yes". (Check the sample image below with highlighted text)
  3. If your drivers says "yes" and then my tool is not able to start let me know i will check it and will fix it for you.
  4. If it says "No" it means you have old drivers which doesn't support  virtualization.
      1.  Even after installing the latest drivers it says "No" it means your hardware is not supporting virtualization.

    Could you help?

    Thx! :)

  5. I have found out a solution by just trying (3 mins):
    Open the command line: Ctrl+R -> cmd
    Type in: netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow

    This line should occur: "The hosted network mode has been set to allow."
    Don't know why but the virtual network was set to "Not Allowed". With this line you can allow it again and now the virtual wifi router will work properly.


Latest News

Now virtual wifi Router is available in CNet also ..
But it has the latest one dont worry once you download you can update the version to latest one.
