Network Connections Blank - Red X on Network Icon- but Internet works
I am connected to the internet, but there is a red x on my network icon (yet when you hover over it, it says internet access.) I tried to go into the network and sharing > change adapter settings, yet the Network connections folder is COMPLETELY blank.
I tried reinstalling the driver. Initially, I get a message that says "the parameter is incorrect" Although, I tried to do it a second time, it said that the driver is up to date.
I dunno what else to do. I'd like to have access to my LAN connection. I'm running Win 7 Ultimate x64.

Well, after 3 hours of trying to find a solution, I immediately found it after creating this thread. Sorry!!!
Anyway, the solution was to open the registry editor, go to: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network" and delete the “Config” value. I restarted my computer, and all was well.
Still wondering: why did this happen in the first place?
