Windows 7: No "connect to" dialog?

14 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu 9.04
No "connect to" dialog?

Wow, what's with these random problems?

Anyway, this has been going on for a few days and is now starting to bug me.

You know how usually you click on the network adapter icon in the system tray (either Ethernet or the Wi-Fi signal bars) and it opens the thing showing what you're connected to and if there are any wireless networks in range?

Well that's disabled for me. I click, double-click, click 5 times on, the network adapter and nothing happens. It flashes white and that's it. Nothing more, nothing less.
Heck, I even open the Network and Sharing Center, click "connect to"... THAT does nothing.

It's like something disabled that from showing up.

Anyone else have this problem? Or have any ideas as to why it's happening?


Never mind, I fixed it!
I ended up doing a "repair install" of Windows because of those DirectX errors I've been having, and that fixed this problem as well!
