Wireless not working after HyperV install

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

I am running server 2008 on my laptop and decided to install HyperV so that I could have an XP VM.

As soon as I installed HyperV my wireless connection stopped working. Though the wireless connection is there in manage network connections it is missing when doing an IPconfig and won’t locate any networks.

I have since uninstalled hyperV, reinstalled both the wireless card driver and the wlan service and nothing has resolved this. I will likely have to reinstall my OS.

If you have 2008 on a laptop and decide to install hyperv fair thee warned.
