I was having the same problem last night,and i have solved it
from this

Unfortunately this downgrading didn't help me. I have changed the kernel to 3.2.0.4-amd64. Shudown the machine and start machine again from the admin panel.

uname -r is showing me 3.2.0.4-amd64

lsmod | grep tun

show me nothing

lsmod | wc -l
19

Why so few modules?

By the way I have additional debian7 droplet and command lsmod | wc -l show me
45 modules

I think something happened in droplet or digitalocean's hypervisor
