I beg your help!
I was trying to connect to a network, so I downloaded the VPN CLIENT SHREW SOFT indicated by the website of my University. Then I installed it and started to have trouble with drivers and hardware, till it wouldn't boot correctly, it went blue screening. I logged in Safe Mode, uninstalled it all, and disabled the Miniport Filters from Shrew Soft on System Devices. I also removed manually the vfilter.sys. It stopped having trouble to turn on the computer, but I cannot, by anyway, connect my wireless internet (and this is the only way I use it).
This is a problem with drivers, when I try to connect the web, it identifies these issues: problem with "Broadcom 4321AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi Adapter"; or Internet Protocol Bindings, telling me to make sureInternet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and (TCP/IPv6) are correctly enabled (but they are).
I also tried to follow these steps: http://lists.shrew.net/pipermail/vpn-help/...May/001580.html
but they only say to me what I've already done.

I cannot connect the internet because of this VPN CLIENT SHREW SOFT and it's really giving me headaches, so I would really appreciate any kind of help!
Thanks and sorry for the english!

Have you contacted anyone in your school's IT department?

If this software created problems for you...chances are it's happened for other students. Resolution may already be on your campus.

the problem is that it isn't a software developed by my school, it is actually a software used worldwidely to connect networks, and they have their "account" there.
If somebody knows about it, please help!
