Reason 442: Failed to Enable Virtual Adapter


I have newly this problem on my laptop. I have searched on forums and aware of the many solutions out there on cisco forums

windows 7 32bit home

dell inspiron duo with only wireless connection. no ethernet port

No antivirus installed or similiar so there should be no firewalls except windows firewall

wlan driver is called atheros. This is the one available from dell support website

cisco vpn client, atheros driver, as wel as windows 7 are all updated to the newest version

no network sharing is enabled or funny settings for the wlan

The vpn client used to work fine, until recently, so it might be a windows update problem. but I can not find or determine the problem, so I donnt know what to report at microsoft

Last words: sometimes it shows me reason 442, sometimes only "securing communication channel" and then nothing happens

any ideas?

many thanks
