Try this.

issue could be related to incompatible router or network adapter driver, security software blocking or spyware preventing the connection, etc.

I suggest updating the network adapter driver on Windows 7 from manufacture's site and router firmware at the same time first. Booting in clean boot and disabling any security software or firewall.

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

Also try the following KB. If it doesn’t work, recreate VPN connection to check the result.

You receive a "741" or a "742" error message when you try to establish a VPN connection by using L2TP/IPsec from a Windows client computer to a VPN server

If this issue persists, please open an elevated command and reset Winsock.
>netsh winsock reset

Then restart the computer and check the issue again.
