Windows 8 error 651

After upgrading my laptop to windows 8 my internet stopped working. I was getting error 651 on my windows 8 laptop. After spending approx. 4 days finally I found solution.

I know many users still have this issue after upgrading to windows 8. I have followed below steps.

1) Go to C drive (press windows key and R key on keyboard and Type C:\ and press enter)

2) Double click on Windows folder

3) Double click on System 32 folder

4) double click on Drivers folder

5) find raspppoe.sys  and rename it to something like old_raspppoe.sys  Make sure do not delete this file as you may need it if this method does not work for you.

6) Find another windows 8 computer and copy this file on USB from C:\windows\sydney32\drivers\raspppoe.sys 

7) Paste this file on faulty computer's drivers folder (path C:\windows\sydney32\drivers\)

8) Reboot your computer and try to connect to internet.


It worked for me hope this will work for you as well. In case you do not have another windows 8 computer send me an email to pcservice@live.com.au and I will send file to you.

I got many request for this file so have attached here.

If above solution does not work then try below solution provided from one of the internet users:

Go to c:\windws\system32\drivers find the raspppoe.sys file right click on it->properties->security->advanced and up in the box is the ownership of the file just click change, right the username you use on pc and change ownership to you, now u can rename/rewrite the file.

    2. OK this is not a solution but until others is a viable option. Go to c:\windws\system32\drivers find the raspppoe.sys file right click on it->properties->security->advanced and up in the box is the ownership of the file just click change, right the username you use on pc and change ownership to you, now u can rename/rewrite the file.

      I have to mention that this solution, replacing the file, didn't work for me but this is the temp fix for all windows files-to take ownership and rework them.

    4. This didn't allow me the needed permission, everything was locked out even though I am the owner of the laptop.

    1. Hi there, I just checked and link is active... not sure if it has been blocked in Bhutan (shouldn't be) Many people still have issue with permission and replacing that file. So i suggest you to try last 3 lines of my blog (you do not need to download file) and see if problem can be solved like that.....

  10. Please open cmd and type iconfig and press enter and check the IPV 4 address. If it is showing something like 169.xx.xx.xx then power off the system, router and the modem and disconnects all the cables that connects the modem router and system to each other. Then power on the modem and then power on the router and connect them to each other with a cable. Then power on the system and try connecting it to Internet. It works I have just tried it and it resolved the issue.

  16. I had the same problem with the error 651, but after trying a lot of tricks (which didnt work) I installed some of the uninstalled updates requests I had on my computer, and the next morning my internet connection was back on. In my case it was something as small as this. Hope it works for some of you out there.

  19. I system restored to a point where there were no problems, but it did not help. It all started with an update to Win 8. Next power up the internet is gone for good. (Three other computers on the internet router are fine, 2 XP and one Win 7. I guess this computer will never have internet again. Way to go Microsoft.
