Error 651 on Win7

Error 651 on Win7

"Local Area Connection" dosen't have a valid IP configuration.


Got this last Friday after lightning struck.Have new modem and on old XP machine now.

From looking around this seems to be a problem with Win7 on anything from new"out of the box" machines to "it just happened one day" shit.It seems MS has no fix and people claim workarounds,but none are sure fire fixes.


Little help plz.
 

D.O.A.

These are great days we're living, bros
dude virtually everytime i boot up my windows 7 it detects two network connections, has a fucking bitch about my local area adaptor or some shit being disabled, then it fixes itself and all is oky doky again. I dunno but it seems now that things that start with L and are made up of three words ARE REALLY FUCKING SHIT UP in windows 7.

I have the same problem.
Sometimes mine wont fix itself and I have to reset the router.
I`ve had numerous problems with drivers while on 7 also.The dvd burner being the main one.
Ima just go back to xp

I have had the same issues with my sata ports regarding my dvd burner...every month or so another one sort of flakes out and I have to switch ports. May seem like a hardware issue, but I assure you it is not. Best way to test? Partition out one of your hard drives with Partition Magic or the likes, with just enough space to hold a Linux OS. Boot to that virtual drive and see if the problems persist. If they do not...software issue, if they do, likely hardware issue.

Also, Nero installs a driver that often wreaks havoc with your CD/DVD drivers when you install Nero software...if I can remember the name, will post it...fuck I hate gettin old!

Aha...found this:
In windows 7, when you try to connect using your PPPoE connections, you may be faced with the following error:

Error 651: The Modem (or other connecting device
) has reported an error.

These connections would work just fine with Windows XP or Windows Vista PCs.

Again, you are not alone, this seems to be a known bug in Windows 7 that is being worked at. However, you can workaround this problem.

The RAS PPPoE driver file “raspppoe.sys” found under c:windowssystem32drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, we can workaround the problem simply by renaming the original raspppoe.sys file to something like “raspppoe_orig.sys” copying a working file from a Windows Vista system. If you do not have access to a Windows Vista system. click here to download raspppoe.sys file (unzip).

Make sure you are logged in as administrator and using safe mode.

Oh original article for the DL

^^^^

I saw that fix listed a few places,it works for some and seems to be the one that works more than others,will prolly try it first if I dont get a definitive answer.

Oh missed this good advice.
I`m going to go ahead and try that Mata.
Much obliged
 
I uninstalled the drivers for the network card,restarted win7 and let it find them and viola.

Tried 157 other things before that,even uninstalling and reinstalling same drivers manually.
