"this connection requires an active internet connection" on vpn connections when I have an active connection
Posted on 2007-03-25
In vista I am unable to connect to any of my VPN connections because they all have the message "this connection requires an active internet connection", however I do have an active connection and can happily (or not) browse the internet and post question to experts exchange.
When I click "diagnose why windows cannot find a connection" it comes back with "this computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured" with an option to install wireless networking software.
However since I have no wireless networking (I am connected to a wireless hub through an ethernet connection) I don't see the point of doing this.
This problem appears to be intermittent, but I am not sure of the cause.
