Microsoft has released a preview of three new updates. This seems to fix multiple connectivity issues that have plagued some Windows versions since the last cumulative update.
As reported by Bleeping Computer, The company released three cumulative updates that month. One is Windows 11 (KB5014668), one is Windows Server 2022 (KB5014665), and the other is Windows 10, 1809 (KB5014669).
Along with regular bug fixes and performance tweaks, these updates also address issues reported earlier this week regarding Wi-Fi hotspots. Last week, Microsoft explained how the previous patch broke functionality.
“If you try to use the hotspot feature, the host device may lose its connection to the Internet after the client device connects,” Microsoft said.
This fix is good news for those affected by this flaw, but for the time being, only these three versions of the OS will solve the problem. On the other hand, if you’re using Windows 10 other than 1809, Windows 8.1, or Windows 7 SP1, you’ll have to wait a bit longer (probably until next Tuesday’s patch).
Has the VPN issue been fixed as well?
On June 14th, Microsoft released KB5014697. This is a cumulative update that addresses a number of known issues in Windows. However, this patch also introduces new flaws: Azure Active Directory sign-in process issues, and Microsoft 365 on Arm devices (other than Wi-Fi hotspot issues).
according to Bleeping ComputerMicrosoft has not yet approved the VPN (Opens in a new tab) RDP connectivity issues that are plagued RRAS servers after the June Windows Server update. In addition, people are beginning to report issues with LLTP / SSTP VPN clients and RDP connection failures.
Among the more annoying problems is the server (Opens in a new tab) It only freezes for a few minutes after the client connects to the RRAS server using SSTP. Microsoft’s solution to this problem is to temporarily disable the NAT feature of the RRAS server, as the company told the publication.
However, some admins report that the latest preview update also resolves these VPN-related issues. This suggests that extensive fixes for all Windows operating systems are imminent.
