It's a driver involving Internet Key Exchange version 2. There are multiple WAN Miniports in the device manager, they are just hidden. If everything works fine and you have all of your drivers up to date, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Very few people need the WAN Miniport driver. It's a Microsoft kernel-mode driver installed with Windows 7, and the Miniport itself is a virtual device, not an actual piece of hardware.

Thank you so much, I was trying to be too much of a perfectionist with every detail, update and with drivers and registries. Once again - Thank you!Jennifer

You're welcome. About drivers in general, if an existing driver works okay just leave it be. Unless there is a compelling reason to update a driver (such as a driver giving you problems), don't update it just because a newer version is available.

People have often updated a driver unnecessarily (because they think it's essential to update religiously) only to find that it causes problems where none existed before they updated it.

There's an old Yorkshire saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"!
