Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter Windows 8.1 Driver Download




Wi-Fi Direct is a technology that allows devices to connect directly to each other without a router or access point. It is faster, more reliable, and more versatile than Bluetooth, as it can handle more data and support more devices. You can use Wi-Fi Direct to transfer files, print documents, play games, or stream video and audio between compatible devices.


However, to use Wi-Fi Direct on your Windows 8.1 device, you need a special driver called Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter. This driver creates a virtual network interface that enables your device to communicate with other Wi-Fi Direct devices. Without this driver, you won't be able to use Wi-Fi Direct on your Windows 8.1 device.

Alternatively, you can also use Windows Update to download and install the driver automatically. To do this, follow these steps:


  • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.



  • Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Windows Update.

How to troubleshoot Wi-Fi Direct connection issues on Windows 8.1




If you have installed the driver but still have problems connecting to other Wi-Fi Direct devices, here are some things you can try to fix them:


Double check the Wi-Fi password and login page




Some Wi-Fi Direct devices may require a password or a login page to connect. Make sure you have entered the correct password or credentials for the device you want to connect to. You can also try opening your browser and visiting any website to see if you are redirected to a login page.


Restart your device and router




Sometimes, a simple restart can solve many connection issues. Try turning off and on your device and the router that provides the Wi-Fi network. This can refresh the network settings and clear any temporary glitches.


Switch Wi-Fi bands or change channel




Wi-Fi Direct devices can operate on either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands, depending on their capabilities. However, some devices may have interference or compatibility issues with certain bands or channels. You can try switching the band or channel of your device or router to see if that improves the connection. You can use a tool like [WiFi Analyzer] to check the best band or channel for your network.
