Did they ever show up?

I assume that you are talking about Device Manager--they are not under Network Adapters and not showing anywhere with an error or warning.

Your title says, "Don’t have any network adapters." I'm looking for confirmation.

Do you have an ethernet cable connected? Any LEDs light when you connect the cable?

Your Realtek Controller would be your Ethernet and it has a yellow warning. So more than likely your driver is not working correctly. One option is to remove the device in Device Manager (right click on the Realtek one, then Uninstall device. Don't remove the drivers if prompted) then reboot the computer and see if Windows will reinstall it correctly.

If this is a branded machine, what make and model is it? (I.E. Dell OptiPlex 7010)

According to the screenshot you didn't have a wireless adapter installed.

Is this a laptop or desktop? Also check Device Manager again to see if anything has any red x or yellow ! icons.

Hmm... I don't know if this will help but press the F7 key (airplane mode) and make sure it's not set to Airplane mode: on. Other than that, you may have a bad wireless card, or at the least it's been dislodged from its connector.
