Specs: Windows XP
I am having trouble connecting to my campus's wifi, and in order to set-it up I have to go to the "network connections" dialog box and select "show all available networks." However, when I go to Control-Panel, Network Connections, it shows nothing. No "LAN or High-Speed Internet", No "Dial Up" , no "Connection Manager". It was there last week, because I was able to 'disable' and 'enable' a connection to get connected. Now I don't even see the option to view connecitons.

I am able to connect to the internet through a manager that came installed with my Lenovo lap top. However, I can not use the Lenovo manager to configure my connection for campus. I have to use the windows dialog, but it has disappeared.

When I go to the start menu, there used to be an option for "connect to", and when I clicked, it gave me options of networks, and I could select "view all". Now there is no "connect to" in the start menu.

Do you see the network adapters in the device manager?

Yes. I have three devices listed:

1394 Net Adapter
Intel(R) 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection
Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 5300

All three are enabled.

If the network connections have been deleted for some reason, try "create a new connection".

It's in the left column.
