I have had this same exact issue. Couple of questions for you. Have you installed any kind of VPN software? If so, then I would uninstall it.

If not, you may want to try doing a system restore back to a point where you knew your connection existed.

Don't forget to install network card driver on computer and also ensure the driver works well. Also think about anything you did on this computer before having this problem, such as install any new program or change network setting, undo them and test again.
