On my daughter's Windows XP SP2 system, when you go to the Network
Connections applet, it's completely empty. Her networking is working,
i.e., she can connect to the Internet, browser other machines, etc., but
there are no "Local Area Connection" icons.
I've tried adding a new connection, but after going through the steps,
I've also tried all of the procedures in this MS KB article:
but still no joy :(...
I've temporarily been able to do what I needed to do (add a second DNS
server IP) using netsh.exe, but I'd sure like to be able to get back the
"Local Area Connection" to do things like that.
I also found an article saying that MS has a hotfix for this problem,
and I got that hotfix, but when I try to apply it, it looks like it's
only for SP1.
Does anyone have any other ideas about what the problem might be?
Her system is home-built, using an MSI K8NGM2-FID motherboard. The
Device Manager looks ok:
- NVIDIA nForce Network controller
NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator:
- NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator
This is actually displaying the same as my system, although I'm running
Thanks in advance,
