when i open network connections the window is empty, also the icon in the bottom that would show my wirless connectiion and signal strength is gone. i have tried starting a new connection but it wont even recognize it is wireless. the lan adapter itself (Cisco Aironet 350 series) lights up and the the status and activity lights continue to work, but when i insert it in and out, my laptop wont recognize it at all. it does this in both slots for a LAN adapter
also, when i try to go into device managers, none of my devices show up just a blank window. could the loss of power and shutdown have done something to cause all this? again it has happened a lot (battery dies and laptop just shuts off) and ive never had this problem. any help would be great..thanks for taking time to read this
also i dont think its a issue with my wireless router, as my Wii and xbox360 connect wirelessly to the same router and have been working fine.
