Windows 7: LAN cable failing

LAN cable failing

Long story short.
I had a minor problem with a LAn cable, and when I tried to fix it (I had no idea what I was doing) I accidentaly disabled it - its not listed on Network and Sharing Center, even though I still have the cable plugged in. Ask and I'll give you additional info.

Open the Network and Sharing Center, on the left side Click on "Change adapter settings", Right click on the Local area connection icon and enable it.

Thanks, it worked :P

Now theres another problem wich I wanted to ask about. Me and my friend use a LAN cable to have the best available connectivity and had a direct tunnel (green icon) on Hamachi to play Minecraft together . Now I turned off Hamachi for a short time and now the tunnel is relayed (blue icon) and nothing seems to help. I diagnosed the connection thing for the cable and Windows says its working properly.
