Error 720 on Windows 7 while connecting to internet using DSL as well as USB wireless modem

    Question

  • I am getting Error 720 on Windows 7 (32 bit) while connecting to internet using DSL as well as USB wireless modem. I tried everything like setting tcp/ip addresses but no luck.

    Both the connections (DSL and USB) work well on Windows XP.

    I hunted for months for a solution to this problem RAS error code 720.

    I have a Thinkpad T60 and about six months ago was suddenly unable to use my Vodafone Vodem so I tried my old Vodafone card modem and it wouldn't work either. Even tried my Sony phone with a cable and it wouldn't work. When I've travelled for the last six months I have had to take my old T42 with me and all the modems work fine with that laptop.

    I have tried many solutions to this and wasted countless hours.

    Today I finally found a tiny free program called rarepair.exe - do a search and you can easily find it but I got it from here

    Click on it and it removes all your network drivers, reboots your machine, reinstalls the drivers and then does a second reboot.

    Everything was restored perfectly. I would have paid serious money for this as it has saved me from doing a fresh XP install which would have taken weeks to get everything reinstalled.

    Please copy this to any sites you have visited while trying to find a solution.

    Microsoft couldn't fix this problem - or pretended it didn't exist. Lenovo are in denial that it exists.

    The person who wrote this little program is a hero!
