Still no luck. I have tried to connect via ethernet and no connection. Have followed advice afforded me. Can not access connection screen by using F2. Ran diagnostic satisfactorily. Says their is no problems. Must be that I inadvertently turned somthing off that affected the connection status. This was done in an attempt to connect my Verizon hot spot. Now I can't connect to any connection weather wired or wireless. How can this be corrected? What could I have done to cause this problem?

My System

Is this a laptop or a desktop?
What is the make and model # of your Computer/Motherboard?
Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc. In the Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? If so these devices need drivers installed. On an internet computer, go to the manufacturers support/download drivers site, type in your model # or service tag # and download the Network Drivers and any other drivers you need from the Device Manager for your computer, save them to a USB Flash drive and install them on the troubled computer.
If there are no yellow flags, go to Start/Run and type ncpa.cpl and press enter. In the Network Connections window, do you see your wireless connection? Does it have a red x across it (eg) Disabled, if so, Right click and Enable it. You can also right click and choose Diagnose.
If you are running SP2 as your profile says, download SP3 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=23334
