Missing "Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter"

    Question

  • I have a virtual machine running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 that is missing the "Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter" in devmgmt.msc.  I have done the regfix of adding DisabledComponents=0 under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\ and I have unhidden the devices in devmgmt.msc.  I have rebooted several times and yet the "Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter" doesn't come back.  How do I manually add the interface?

  • Hi Snickered.

     

    Not sure whether you resolved this, or just rebuilt the server, but I performed the following to get my Teredo Pseudo-adapter back.

     

    1. InDevice Manager, right click the Computer node and select Add Legacy Hardware.
    2. Click Next in the wizard
    3. Select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced). Click Next
    4. Select Network Adapters under Common hardware types.  Click Next
    5. Select Microsoft under Manufacturer and Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter.  Click Next
    6. Click Next to install the hardware.

     

    May come in useful in future.

     

    Cheers

  • Hi snickered,


    Thanks for posting here.

     

    Please try performing  “netsh interface ipv6 set teredo client” with administrator permission in command prompt and restarting this VM to see how is going.

     

    Thanks.

  • Wow... I don't even remember starting this thread.

    Thanks Shaun, I guess I rebuilt... who knows.  I can't believe I didn't try what you described... old-school...

  • Man this saved my bacon. for some reason the driver was missing and nothing I did including the MS Fixit did any good. I could not remote desktop at all until this.
