I came across this issue for Unidentified Network issue with VMWare’s virtual NICs in Vista (http://aspoc.net/archives/2008/10/30/unidentified-network-issue-with-vmwares-virtual-nics-in-vista/) that also seems to apply to the TAP connection that I'm using with CoLinux.  I searched my registry for tap0801.sys and tried adding the DWORD Value mentioned in this article where occurances of this file turned up in the registry, but it didn't seem to resolve the issue.  Can anyone tell me where in the registry to apply the changes mentioned in this article for the TAP connection?
