I performed a clean full install of Windows 7 Ultimate. After the numerous updates and re-installing drivers, I attempted to set up a VPN, which I have been able to do in the past. However, when I click on "Connect to a network" under Network and Sharing Center, nothing happens. I would expect another window to appear where I make a selection of what type of connection I would like to create, of which I would choose VPN. The drivers are direct the manufacturer of the mobo, but still not having any luck...even after another clean install. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Specs are as follows:
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Build 7601
Mobo: GA-990FXA-UD3
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2 Ghz

Thanks in advance

  • Click "Start"
  • Select "Control Panel"

If "View by" is "Category":

  • Click "Network and Internet"
  • Click "Network and Sharing Center"
  • Click on "Set up a new connection or network"

If "View by" is "Large icons" or "Small icons":

  • Click "Network and Sharing Center"
  • Click on "Set up a new connection or network"


  • Click "Start" and type "vpn" in the "search programs and files" box.

You rock bro. Typing "vpn" in the search box did the trick. Not sure why it didn't open through Network and Sharing Center, but whatevs.
