In Windows 7 (32 bit) I have been unable to connect to DSL due to error 651. I tried replacing the (corrupted) raspppoe.sys file with a copy downloaded from the internet.
This only revealed another problem. After this measure, I kept on getting the 797 error--modem not found. I soon discovered the wan pppoe miniport (virtual hardware) driver was bad. However, upon trying to re-install, the driver, I got an error from Windows stating the driver software was found but could not be installed.
Finally, I used system restore and this worked a little bit. The connection might work for an hour before it cuts off and I see the error 651 message again.
In addition, I also enabled plug-and-play, turned off automatic dial-up and every other suggestion floating around the interent in an attempt to solve the problem. None of them have worked so far.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
