Thread: inSSIDER Security setting changed to "IHV_Start-IHV_Start". What does that mean?

    Default inSSIDER Security setting changed to "IHV_Start-IHV_Start". What does that mean?

    Tonight I noticed that the Security field in inSSIDer for one of my networks had changer from "WPA2-Personal" to "IHV_Start-IHV_Start" All the rest of the entries for that network were correct. What does that mean? What could cause it? I have Googled but can't find anything that seems to relate to this problem.

    I am using inSSIDer 2.1 on a new Windows 7 Pro, 64, Dell laptop with Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265. My router is a Linksys EA4500. I have two networks with different SSIDs. One is 2.4 GHz and the other is 5 GHz. Both had strong signals. The 5 GHz had the odd Security setting.

    Can anybody explain what is going on?

    Thanks,
    Vivian

    As far as I know IHV_START is a proprietary authentication algorithm for a specific operating mode of the miniport driver. There is a matching IHV_END. It is defined by an independent hardware vendor (IHV). I've never seen it used.

    I suggest that you verify and/or update the driver for Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter using Device Manager along with your network adapters.

    Hello Vivian,
    even if I reply a little late, I hope you read it yet. I have found the solution. You have mentioned it in your posting, without even knowing it.
    If you give the two networks different names, inSSIDer recognizes it as "IHV_Start-IHV_Start".
    If the networks have the same name, the security_level is “WPA2-Personal”.
    I have this post for you and for all the user that have the same problem written. The English version is unfortunately a translation with Google translates – sorry when it is not so well.
