I have Windows 8.1 with Realtek RTL8187SE and I wanted to start a WiFi access point from my laptop but I checked on the Device Manager and "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Adapter" was missing. I clicked "Show hidden devices" but I couldn't find it under "Network Adapters". I tried disabling my WiFi adapter and re-enabling it to see if Microsoft Virtual WiFi Adapter would appear but nothing happened. I uninstalled and reinstalled my driver by restarting the laptop but it didn't show up. How do I fix this?
EDIT: I almost forgot, I checked Network Connections to see if I would find it but it isn't there.
EDIT 2: I used the following command to attempt to create the hotspot.
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=***** key=*********
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
And it said "The hosted network could not be started". I also tried
netsh wlan show drivers | findstr "Hosted network supported"
But it said that hosted network is not supported even though I created hotspots on Windows Vista/7.
