Today I want to connect to my VPN, but to find that there is not any VPN in my Networks list.
I work in win8.1 and had set up the VPN connection for a long time. I used it last week, but today it disappeared.
Then I google this issue for solutions. And after checking some invalid solutions such as
turn on Telephony service,
turn on RRAS service, I remembered that I had turned the OneDrive off last week. I had tried some wrong way before turning it off. Maybe these cause this VPN issue.
Yes, it’s right.
I turn off the
Network List Service and reboot, the VPN comes back and works.
And there is thr right way to turn off OneDrive in Win8.1:
