    Hi everyone i could really use some help.
    I connect to the internet through Qwest DSL, im using an external ActionTec GT701-WG Modem. Recently I was playing WoW (Online Game) and the power to my house up and died for several hours. When i was able to reboot my computer Windows told me that is had Recovered from a serious error, that had come from m Internet Temp Files.. Now connection to the Internet through my computer is impossible.. I went through the normal steps to determine the nature of the problem and discovered that all my Network connections are missing! I spent several hours messing with Windows wizards to try and Create New connections. Obviously i have been unsuccessful. The modem is working just fine.. in fact my mothers Laptop which i am currently using had no problems connecting.. My question is "What am i supposed to do?" My computer came standard with all those Network connections i have never had to do anything except plug in the Ethernet cord from my modem. The only thing i could think of would be to contact Qwest and see if I can get their installation CD for my modem. What do yall think?
    Oh and otherwise my PC functions normally.

    Check your device manager and ensure your network adapter still shows in there. With having all your network connections gone I wonder if something happened to your NIC.
