TAP driver error when connecting to a VPN

There may be a few reasons why you’re getting this error.

Usually restarting the TAP adapter helps. To restart it, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change Adapter Settings.
  2. One of the local area connections will have an under-name TAP-NordVPN Windows Adapter v9.
  3. Disable it and enable it again. Try to connect now.

If the issue persists, try reinstalling your TAP drivers. You can download them here:
