Windows 10: Network Connections Blank

  1.    25 Jun 2017 #1

    Network Connections Blank


    Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections - Appears to be empty

    I have tried some Registry fixes - CMD fixes - sfc /scannow - And it insists to be empty.

    HOWEVER

    When I plugin a wireless adapter and look into network connections and everything is back - Remove it and everything goes blank again.

    What should I do?

    Thanks.

    Well, obviously... the Wi-Fi will find and connect a network ... without that or ethernet ... it will be blank... not so?

    Maybe I need to describe it more - Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections is completely blank - No adapters / images / symbols etc . Also Device manager doesn't show any devices with missing drivers or any errors.

    When connecting the WIFI adapter - other adapters come back like it should be - even if it is disabled/unconnected. Take out the WIFI adapter and Network connections is empty.

    I have tried to leave in the Ethernet cable in - but doesn't do anything - I do see the LED lights show up.

    Make sure, that network services are set to Auto. Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

    Code:
    sc config Dhcp start= auto
    sc config netprofm start= auto
    sc config NlaSvc start= auto
    sc config nsi start= auto
    net start nsi
    net start NlaSvc
    net start Dhcp

    If this is the same computer that you had problems with last year I would check your BIOS again and see if your Lan is disabled again.

    If you need drivers for the motherboard look here:
    ASRock > Z77 Pro4-M
