I have Realtek RTL8187SE version 6.9071.822.2008 on Windows 8.1 and I'm trying to start a network but when I try to start the network it gives me "The hosted network could not be started". I set the mode to allow before I tried it. I went to enable ICS I installed the program Connectify to see if that would work but it tells me that my card isn't supported. I updated my driver from the website but I got a Code 31 so I uninstalled it and went back to the older version. I had the same driver when I was on Windows Vista/7 and it worked then. How do I fix this?
- Try to uninstall your physical WiFi adapter
- In device manager, click on Actions - Find hardware changes - Wifi adapter should automatically appear again and so the Microsoft Hosted Network Adapter.
- If the Hosted Network Adapter is still greyed out, right click on your Physical Wifi adapter, Properties, Drivers, Revert driver changes
