Windows Vista & Network Adaptors

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, I know (for whatever reason) they moved a whole lot of crap around in Windows Vista. This morning. . I completely got lost and could not re-enable my network adaptor after disabling it before I power-cycled my router (which was being gay, but that's besides the point).

Why, oh why, do they have an easy little button for you to disable the adaptor, then you have to jump through hoops and dance like a monkey to get it re-enabled? In XP you just right click on the icon in "My Network Places" and hit "Enable". . . . *** is wrong with Microsoft?! That was a GOOOD FEATURE!!!!!!!

In the little icons in the bottom right hand corner, right click your network icon and select Network and Sharing Center. On the left side, the 2nd to left is manage network connections. Click it, and you are at your network adapter! Right-click and enable or disable, I toyed around with Vista A LOT!!!
