Microsoft has just released a preview of three new updates, which seem to have fixed multiple connectivity issues plagued some Windows versions since the last update.
As reported by Blipping computerThe company has released three incremental updates for the month, one for Windows 11 (KB5014668), one for Windows Server 2022 (KB5014665) and one for Windows 10, 1809 (KB5014669).
Among the usual bug fixes and performance tweaks, these updates fix issues reported on Wi-Fi hotspots earlier this week. Last week, Microsoft explained how it had broken the previous patch feature.
“When trying to use the hotspot feature, the host device may lose connection to the Internet after connecting a client device,” Microsoft said.
The solution is great news for those affected by the error, but for now, only these three versions of the OS fix the problem. Meanwhile, with the exception of 1809, Windows 8.1, or Windows 7 SP1, Windows 10 users will have to wait a little longer (probably until the next patch Tuesday).
VPN problem is also fixed?
On June 14, Microsoft released KB5014697, a growing update that fixes several known Windows issues. However, the patch also introduced new bugs, such as problems with the sign-in process for Azure Active Directory, as well as Microsoft 365 on Arm devices (in addition to Wi-Fi hotspot issues).

What’s more, people are starting to report problems with LLTP / SSTP VPN clients as well as failure to connect to RDP.

However, some administrators are reporting that the latest rafts of preview updates also address these VPN-related issues, suggesting that a comprehensive solution may be forthcoming for all Windows operating systems.
