Hello, new to these forums, post #1 woohoo!
I have what seems to be a common and uncommon problem, all at the same time.
I have lost all network connection icons from the list in network connections.
Nor does it list Network Connections at all in the device manager.
The thing that gets me is, my internet connection works gloriously lol.
I cant find my NIC in device mgr, it tells me there isnt one, however there darned sure is, im usin it as we speak.
if anyone can help me to restore them to the list that would be awesome.

It apears that I am having the same issue.

When I try the steps as outlined in the microsoft link (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/825826), I am noticing that I am unable to complete one of the steps as my computer seems to be missing "Network Connection Services" under services in computer management. I have received the hotfix from Microsoft, but Windows XP tells me that the software installed on my computer is newer than the software in the hotfix. So, the hotfix has not worked.

Windows XP came loaded on my Toshiba Satellite and it did not come with a Windows disk, so re-installing is not an option.

I am stumped.
