Windows 11 VPN not available

Frequent Visitor

Hi All

 

I have an issue with the VPN client on Windows 11, its been working fine till approx. 3 weeks ago when I noticed that I didn't have the VPN option in the pop up toaster, as seen below (Also notice I can't add it either)

I then noticed that all my VPN connections weren't showing in the settings app

I also checked in the Network Connections / Control Panel and no sign of them either

I then removed all the connections using PowerShell since i wasn't able to see them thinking maybe their is some corruption and proceeded to re-add VPN's. I can go through the add VPN wizard and complete it, but then it doesn't shows any of the created VPNs from the wizzard in Win11 settings or the Network Connections / Control Panel area.

 

Checking with PowerShell and I can see the various VPN's i created

What i have done to troubleshoot

a) Removed all WAN Miniport (IKEv2, L2TP, PPOE, PPTP, SSTP) then performed search to find new hardware - Completed no issues

b) Performed DISM scan health -> No issues

b) Performed SFC /scannow - No issues

c) Tried creating a test vpn not specifying VPN type and using automatic - No change

e) Removed WireShark, OpenVPN

f) Performed a netsh process as per: https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/topic/how-to-reset-tcp-ip-by-using-the-netshell-utility-d954430c...

 

Looking for any other ideas that could help?
