im having a problem connecting thru my wireless network.  had it set up 2 days ago and it was working fine.  computer froze so i shut it off by holding the power button.  now when i reboot no connections worked.

called verizon and they fixed the LAN problem.  so the internet works if i hook it up through the router directly into the computer.  also another computer works thru the wireless network in my house.

the problem is when i go to network connections the page is blank.  the LAN connection icon is gone, and there is no wireless icon.

i have no idea what went wrong, the guy from verizon said hes never heard of the icons dissappearing, please help me.

thank you

yup there are three things, and they are all green with no X's, the three items are:

1394 net adapter
802.11b wireless LAN cardbus (mini)PCI NIC
National semiconductor corp dp83815 10/100 macphyter3v PCI adapter

the card blinks like its searching for the signal, and it actually blinks green (how it looked when connected) for like 2 seconds when i restart my comp before i log in

This is a long shot but for some reason when you have Apropos on your computer you will lose the connection icons and the Device Manager is blank when you open it. Your Device Manager is not blank but we could still try this to rule it out.

Download one (or both) of the files to your Desktop.
http://www.reesecomputing.com/downl.../AproposFix.exe
http://www.reesecomputing.com/downl...Uninstaller.exe


Restart your computer and enter Safe Mode by pressing F8 on the keyboard repeatedly AFTER your BIOS loads and BEFORE Windows starts to load.


Log into the account where the files you downloaded are on the Desktop. It should be an account with Administor privledges.


For AproposFix.exe:
Double click on AproposFix.exe and extract the files to your Desktop. Open that folder and double click on Run This.bat and follow the instructions. Restart the computer once you are prompted.

For AproposUninstaller.exe:
Double click on AproposUninstaller.exe to open the removal tool. Click on the Start button when you are ready to start scanning. Follow the instructions within the removal tool.

Probably not, did you look in the ADD/REMOVE Programs to see if it is listed in there? Like I said its a long shot was just wondering if you did have it installed.

You could run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow   ( sfc if not reconized)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem. You will need your Windows cd.


You could also try using System Restore to the day before it happened
