Missing WAN miniport devices - L2TP and PPTP

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Hi,
My machine runs Windows XP Pro, which was installed by my IT department
from a generic image. For some reason I am missing the above devices,
which in turn prevents me from establishing L2TP connection (required
by my ISP).
The lack of these devices can be verified by borwsing the relevant
registry keys and by using device manager (with "show hidden" option
enabled).

How can I reintall/revive these devices without completely reinstalling
Windows???

Would appreciate your help!!

Thanks,
- Rod

    Is the ISP - AOL? If yes, they have a tool somewhere in their software for
    removing and then rebuilding their special protocols.

    Thanks, but no - it is not AOL.

    My ISP relies on the WAN miniport L2TP dialer, which is bundeled with
    Windows XP.

    For some reason my installation does not include it :-(
