Device Manager shows no problems?

Network Connections shows our wireless connection as enabled?

You detect your wireless network and try to connect to it, right? After doing so ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I see no wireless connection in Network Connections nor, of course, in the ipconfig /all

I do not understand how you can be viewing a network or trying to connect to it???

Is it possible that the USB adapter is losing power? It starts out OK, you view networks, you try to connect, and then the adapter loses power, hence disappears from Network Connections?

"but i get that media disconnected error...what does that mean?"

If means you do not have an ethernet cable connected to your ethernet adapter. That's an error indication if and only if you actually do have a cable connected. You've been talking about the wireless, so I have been ignoring the wired; are you having a problem with that also?

Help!!!
I too am having the same problem with my local cable connection. I typed in the ipconfig/all and it states 'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
We recently had our land outside of our house hit by lightening. It knocked out our phone service and cable service. My wireless router works on my laptop, but not my desktop - problem with the above.... Please Help
