Last week I did something stupid with the domain name and locked myself out of the computer. After I reset the password using an excellent tool (name escapes me), it logs me in on an older domain name. No problem, I can just move everything over from the other profile.
The problem is, it also has messed with my network connections. To wit:
1. The wireless PCMCIA card is enabled and the device is working properly
2. When I type in "ipconfig" into the cmd line, it says Media disconnected, with zero other information.
3. When I physically plug the laptop into the wireless hub, there's no difference (other than "A network cable is unplugged" vs. "Wireless connection unavailable")
4. When I physically plug the laptop into the DSL modem, there's no difference
So, the wireless connection is up and running (that's what I'm using right now, on a different computer), and I've reinstalled the PCMCIA card drivers, stopped it, taken it out, and reinserted. But I don't think it's the PCMCIA card.
I've used the Network Setup Wizard, but it tells me in the first screen that my PC Card and my LAN card are disconnected.
How can I "reconnect" these items and restore network access?
Any help would be hugely appreciated.
