VPN error 800 no pptp?

Last night my windows xp laptop decided to loose all of its IP stack info.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled my LAN and Wireless NIC and this is functioning properly.  My only problem left is that I can no longer use my VPN connections.  I get an error 800 as if the servers are not there.  This is definitely a problem on my end.

I tried uninstalling the wan miniport and recreating the vpn connection.  My only possible clue is that my connection details say they are for L2TP and not PPTP.

Any idea how I can get connect to my remote networks again?

Yes I have ....Did that before I realized that I needed to remove and readd the NICs.  Wireless and LAN work fine.  I suspect I have a miniport problem.  Just dont know what it is.
