Windows 7: "ipconfig" Suddenly Stops Showing Adapters

"ipconfig" Suddenly Stops Showing Adapters

Hi all,

Tonite, I went to install a new PCI-E Firewire card into my desktop running Windows 7 Ultimate X64 and I had to install the most recent critical updates before shutting down.

Foolishly, I did not boot up after the updates, to verify my OS's integrity..I just installed the card and booted up. The card installed just fine, but now I have no network config. Odd, eh?

While troubleshooting, I changed slots and eventually removed the card. I also performed a system restore to a point prior to this evening. Still, I can not see my adapters from ipconfig. I can, however, see the adapters in the Control Panel, and I see they still have their configs.

I removed and reinstalled the adapters to no avail. I installed a wireless adapter, and even was able to see my router, and authenticate and establish a connection, but nothing in ipconfig.

It looks like my stack is hosed...any idea what I can do next? Can one reinstall "Networking" on a Windows 7 host? I hesitate booting off the emergency CD and doing anything drastic if there is a more simple solution I can consider.

Thanks all.

Is it listed in Network Connections? If it's disabled there it might not show up in ipconfig.

Just to follow up: My firewall, "ESET's Smart Security", had a corrupted database. It required a re-install and all is well.
