    try to check on your network settings, maybe some adapters are disabled.

    also, try to run these commands on command prompt;
    these should refresh/re-generate your network connection..

    execute each one

    ipconfig /release

    ipconfig /renew

    ipconfig /flushdns

    now, check your connections again.

    Right-click CMD.exe icon in Programs and choose Run as administrator.
    When the User Account Control box pop up, click Yes.
    At the command prompt, copy and paste (or type) the following command and then press ENTER:

    Uninstall and allow windows to re-install the adapter and Driver
    I would goto device manager and right click on the adapter and uninstall/remove and then restart the PC and let windows re-detect the hardware and reinstall the driver
