    The virtual router function in W7 is fantastic and I am running a small PAN now consisting of a media server with a WiFi card and connection to internet, and two laptops connected using WiFi to the server.

    My question is about speed and radio type.

    The server has a Ralink RT2860 chip which should and reports to support 802.11n

    netsh wlan show all reports:

    Adapter Ralink with driver version 3.0.11.0 (latest driver from Dec 2009)
    Radio Type support 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n
    FIPS 140-2 support Yes
    Host support Yes

    My active connection externally to an access point with Internet shows
    Radio Type 802.11g
    Signal strength 70%

    My hosted network shows
    Radio Type 802.11b !!

    I went into the device manager and opened the settings for the Ralink card and changed one setting:
    Adhoc support 802.11n to Enable

    My hosted network now showed
    Radio Type 802.11g

    How can I set my hosted network to use 802.11n?
    Why did it use 802.11b at first?

    All suggestions welcome

    Please post here how to force remove passwordv from vitrual Router Manager clients
    HOW TO
    REMOVE PASSWORD FROM Vitrual Router Manager
    REMOVE PASSWORD FROM Microsoft Virtual WIFI Minport Adapter
    FORCE REMOVE Vitrual Router Manager
    WORK AROUND TO REMOVE PASSWORD FROM Vitrual Router Manager
    BLANK PASSWORD TO Vitrual Router Manager
    REMOVE WPA2 PASSWORD FROM Vitrual Router Manager


    I WOULD LIKE TO FORCE REMOVE PASSWORD AND WI-FI Encryption off of the virtual wireless network is there some type of patch or hack i can do this for some reason Microsoft is forcing you to put a password on the network as if we're unable to think for ourselves and they know best.
