Re: wifi miniport adapter missing
Are you trying to use something like VirtualRouter? I have had some trouble with these programs especially with Win7/8 compatibility. Generally I am able to solve them with some troubleshooting but there is not one Fix All. Let me know exactly what software you are using to create the hotspot, as well as what operating system you are using.

Right-click on the Start Menu button and open Command Prompt (Admin)

Reboot your PC and check if you're able to connect to WiFi network. If you can, you're good to go, but if not, type the following commands in the elevated Command Prompt and press Enter after each one:
netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
Solution 2 - Re-configure WiFi Adapter
Maybe reconfiguring your WiFI adapter will solve the problem. To do so, follow next steps:
Go to Search, type device manager and open Device Manager
Right-click on your wireless adapter and go to Properties
Go to Power Management tab, uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power and click OK
Modify the default power plan, and switch it from high energy savings to low
Assuming you've already confirmed that the toshiba can supported a hosted network ...
to create a hotspot, at the command prompt, type "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=yournetworkname key=yournetworkpassword," and hit Enter on your keyboard. Remember, "ssid" refers to the WiFi hotspot's name while "key" is said network's password. You can also use the aforementioned command to change the hotspot's name and password.
To get the hotspot up and running, type "netsh wlan start hostednetwork.
