Windows 7: Re-enabling a Network?

Re-enabling a Network?

So for whatever reason I decided to disable my wired "Network 2" connection, which is my primary one because I was testing out the wireless capabilities of my machine. Now, that network seems to be completely non-existent and I can't seem to find any way to re-connect to it or enable it again. When I search around on Google all I get are links of how to re-enable a network adapter, which is not what I want. Any help or solution would be greatly appreciated. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium.
