Question by Krishna prasad: I am not able to access the internet, but my network is detected. Error ‘active network adapter not found’.
I am using windows XP sp2. I accidentally removed the ‘restore point’ and booted in safe-mode. Then booted in normally. Thereafter, my network (internet) connectivity is effected and I am no longer able to connect to the net. The ‘netwroking’ tab in the windows task manager throws this error: ‘Active network adapter not found’. Even after trying various options and searching numerous topics in this regard, I am still not able to access the internet. I use broadband internet connection. Also, I am not able to start this service “Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)”.
Any help/idea or any information in this is appreciated. You can send your answers/suggestions etc. to: Lrvkp1976@yahoo.com
I just had to add this … a) I was able to access the internet before the current problem.
b) I am using a desktop PC and this does NOT have any wireless connection.
c) Even after I ran my motherboard CD, the missing network adapter/driver etc. could not be enabled. Also, it showed that the one on pc are the latest.

It sounds like you could access the internet before.
You may just be missing Drivers for the Network card, or The Modem you are using, your modem should come with drivers for it along with a router if you use one, Check your Device manager to see if you can find drivers the the Networking Card.
