I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600 and my internet connection still isn't working after I formatted the drive. I set it up, username and password and it's saying:

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

I've read that this is a bug and that I need the file: rapppoe.sys d from a working Vista system. I tried this before the clean install, but not sure if that was a good file.

Any suggestions ? If someone is kind enough to upload the rapppoe.sys file found in C:\Windows\system32\drivers. A direct link because I'm on my phone or e-mail it to

Thanks, Christian

Might want to take your email out of normal typeface so a searcher doesn't find it. Also, just use the CD that came with your computer and re-install drivers. – D'Arvit Sep 11 '09 at 11:37
I would post it, but I need web-space. – D'Arvit Sep 11 '09 at 11:41

Here is a link for a vista rapppoe.sys.
Note 1: Not my file, so I can't guarantee it.
Note 2: The rapppoe.sys method is not guaranteed to work.
