Fix WAN Miniport problem windows 8

Windoooooowwws , it makes me crazy some times 🙂

Sometimes(it’s my third time) I have problems with windows vpn, getting error 720.

It has a “simple”(when you know(:) solution but every time I come across this problem I forget how I solved it before and decided to write solution here.

In Device Manager under “Network adapters” , there is yellow exclamation mark over “WAN Miniport (IP)” and “WAN Miniport(Network Monitor)

Let’s uninstall it.

Uninstalling these miniports are not allowed. So first of all you should change it with different driver.

Locate your mouse on these driver and right click -> Update Driver Software->Browse my computer for driver software->Let me pick from a list of …-> uncheck “Show compatible hardware” and then choose for example Philips ->

ChangeDriver

 

 

 

 

When instead of WAN Miniport (IP) there appears the above driver , you can uninstall it.

Do the same steps for Network Monitor driver.

Now we do not have these drivers with exclamation marks.. because we do not have them at all 🙂

Now we are going to install these drivers with devcon.exe utility.

Download devcon 64bit version from http://static.miklos.ca/devcon.zip

Run CMD with administrator privileges, go to the directory where devcon.exe file exist and run:

devcon.exe install c:\windows\inf\netrasa.inf MS_NDISWANIP

Good Luck, it should now be working.
