VPN 800 Error - T500/Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN/Windows 7 64-bit

2011-01-20, 13:23 PM

This is a new machine (to me). It is a T-500 2242CTO with an Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN card and a fresh install of Windows 7 64-bit.  I successfully VPN using Ethernet from this machine and wirelessly from other machines in my home network.  However, wireless VPN connectivity from this machine fails 100% of the time.  Current drivers and updates are installed.  I am using the Windows VPN client and receive the following message:


Error 800: The remote connection was not made because the attempted VPN tunnels failed. 


I turned on logging and found no useful information, to me, in the mounds of data generated.  I've also un-installed the wireless driver, re-installed it, un-installed Lenovo Access Connections and the same error continues. 


Has anyone encountered this issue or have suggested fixes?
