    I'm having trouble connecting my pc to a ethernet network
    The o/s is windows xp. The problem is that when i right click
    my network places and select properties, no network adaptor is
    available to configure. i get a message saying the network folder
    was unable to retrieve the list of network adaptors on you pc,
    make sure network connections service is running.

    why? Guest

    You have - (in no patricular order)

    0) Checked the Network Connections (as it's mentioned in your message)
    service state?
    1) Installed a NIC?
    2) Followed the new HW wizard if it ran, and installed a driver?
    3) Checked the TCP/IP setup , static/dynamic?
    4) Checked the event logs for errors?
    5) Installed a NIC driver manually?
    6) Checked Device Manager?
    7) Manually started Network Connections service?

    Hey, Jimi, how did you fix this? I've stopped and restarted the Networ
    Connecitons service, rebooted, many times, still can't see any Networ
    Connections, only get the same error as you listed. Thx for your help
