This a well known bug in Windows 7 specially when you migrate from Windows Vista to Windows 7.
The cause is a file "raspppoe.sys". This file will be found on the partition you have installed your operating system If it is C: partition then it is found on C:\Windows\System32\drivers.
To fix this bug simply rename it as shown as follows

(1)Rename this file from "raspppoe.sys" to raspppoe.old or any name it any name of your choice.
(2)Once this done simply restart

Good luck!

How to fix error 651 on windows 7

Fix 2: - Error 651 Modem PPPoE Broadband Internet Connection

The root of the problem is believed to be caused by the RAS PPPoE file raspppoe.sys found in the folder C:\Windows\System32\Drivers. To fix this problem, we will have to replace the file raspppoe.sys with a new one. Try to copy the file from your friend's computer which has Windows 7 installed. Alternatively, you can download the raspppoe.sys file from this site (thanks to the author). After you get the file, before pasting it into C:\Windows\System32\Drivers, be sure that you rename the original file to something like raspppoe_ori.sys, so that if something weird happen you have a backup of your original file. Paste the new raspppoe.sys into the directory after you've renamed the original file. Try to connect your modem and it should work fine now.

Error: 651


What causes the Error 651?


  • The raspppoe.sys file has become corrupted. RASPPPOE.sys is an acronym for Remote Access Service Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. This is a windows driver that many broadband service providers use for authentication when connecting to the internet through a broadband modem.
  • Possible problems with the Local Area Network (LAN) card driver.
  • There may be a conflict with the modem driver and your operating system.

How can I resolve the problem?


  1. Try rebooting your computer. Sometimes a simple reboot will clear your cache and reset the modem.
  2. Rename the existing RASPPPOE.sys file and take a copy of the file from a Windows Vista system. Apparently this problem has been reported for Windows 7 users, by renaming the current file and copying this file from Windows Vista, it should resolve the issue. This file can be found in c:\windows\system32\drivers. You can download a copy of the driver for Windows Vista here (http://www.windowsreference.com/wp-c...5/raspppoe.zip)
  3. Re-install LAN Driver. It's also possible that your drivers are outdated and you may need to download updates from the manufacturer's website.
  4. Install the latest patches for your current Windows OS.
