Component: Generic / unclassified Version: OpenVPN 2.2.2 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:



I am having lots of wifi issues on mu Surface Pro 2. The wireless gets frozen and un-accessible.
What I could find out until now is when I install mullvad which uses between TAP-Win32 Adapter V9 drivers from OpenVPN, the wifi gets down and then not able to open wireless definitions and try to troubleshoot.
found that when wifi goes down it occurs the following warning message on the event log:
DNS Client Events
Event 1014

Name resolution for the name wpad timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

Uninstalling Tap and Marvel drivers makes the wifi more stable but not enough. Sometimes when restart surface problems re-occur after some 15 min. Best solution is reset surface to factory defaults.

Did you experienced this problem?

This does not really belong here. First, you did not install an OpenVPN package with a driver provided by us, but "something else" - we don't know what their installer or driver does. Second, if the wifi is unstable, this is really a microsoft issue.
