    This error occurs when the raspppoe.sys file is corrupted in your drivers folder, there is workaround as same like as Windows 7, just follow the steps given below

    STEP 1: Go to C:/Windows/System32/drivers.
    STEP 2: Search for the file raspppoe.sys file.
    STEP 3: Just rename the file to some other name eg: raspppoe.sys_old
    STEP 4: Now try to open the installation media files of Windows 8 and try to locate the raspppoe.sys file.
    STEP 5: Copy it again to the same C:/Windows/System32/drivers folder and restart your system.
    This should help to make your problem fixed, if you are still having some issue then write to us in this column to get the problem fixed as soon as possible.

    Dear friend,

    This is a very common problem. It occurs in windows 7 also. So if you have upgraded your PC to Windows 8 you need not to worry about this.

    The RAS PPPoE driver file “raspppoe.sys” found under c: windows\system32\drivers folder seems to be the root cause of the problem and it is system file.

    You can solve this problem by renaming raspppoe.sys to raspppoe.old.


    If this does not work then you can follow the alternative step which I am providing you below:-


    You are require to re - register the file and then check for the Internet connection.

    1. Click on Start.
    2. In search window type 'cmd' and ENTER.
    3. Now Right click and select 'Run as administrator'
    4. In the command window that opens, type regsvr32 raspppoe.sys and press Enter.

    If your system internet enabled and shows error code 651 it means your modem(or other connecting device) has reported an error to overcome that particular problem you can try these steps....

    >>Open C:/Windows/System/Driver Directory and change the file name of raspppoe.sys as other name
    >>Uninstall Microsoft virtual PC
    >> Disable IPv6 for your connection
    >>Uninstall Modem
    >>Disable some other function of your LAN card
    >> Re install LAN/NIC driver
    >>And last restart your computer

    After doing this the error code 651 surely recover

    Thank you...............
