  • You don't ask in here for one.  There's a MSDN developer preview forum
    And you realize this is a beta, an early beta?

  • I wanted to move it to the forum you indicated, but I don't see it in the list of forums for MSDN. Do you know if this forum can be accessed in MSDN? If so, can you show where it is?

  • Based on the look of it, I'm guessing it's on a different backend software and thusly can't be moved.


    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsdeveloperpreviewgeneral/threads That's the forum.  I can get there manually, I don't know if you can move it there.

  • error 651 is a device error.

    Advance OS does not mean devices are readily available, and this build is actually for developers to have time to write drivers to solve problems like this. Contact your device manufacturer to see if they already know about this issue. In the mean time, test some other hardware (e.g. a USB network adapter).

  • He did, but I still don't know how. It will be nice if he can post a screen shot of where that forum was.

  • Hello Alert me,

    Is this ppoe error message on a wired or wireless network?
    Have you tried to delete and recreate the connection?
    Have you ever been able to connect or have you had this issue since you installed
    Windows Developer Preview?

  • Dear Sir


       I am using wired network and i am using pppoe to connect to internet.  Yes I tried to delete and recreate connection, it will connect for 3 minute maximum, then it disconnects, If i try to reconnect it will give error 651.

        My question posted in forum may look like abusive, if so I am sorry, that day I tried for 6hours applying all methods that I found in google, in frustration I wrote that question.


    I am not an expert, please help me to resolve this problem.


    -thanking you
