SYMPTOM

 

The network adapter icons are missing from Network and Sharing Center. However, you can see the adapters in Device Manager and can access Internet without problems even though a Red X appears at the notification area. The issue persists after uninstalling and reinstalling the NIC drivers.

 

RESOLUTION

 

1.     Please ensure the following registry key is not missing:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\{759F6019-7C4A-44BD-A9EC-7DC5393874C3}\Connection

 

Valuename: "Name"

Type: REG_SZ

If it ismissing, create it with a value of "Local Area Connection"

 

Valuename: "DefaultNameIndex"

Type: REG_DWORD

If it is missing, create it with a value of "0".

 

Valuename: "DefaultNameResourceId"

Type: REG_DWORD

If it is missing, create it with a value of "0x70b".

 

2.     Ensure the following settings are correct:

 

1)      "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{27AF75ED-20D9-11D1-B1CE-00805FC1270E}", The default value is ‘netman’, and its subkey:

 

Valuename: LocalService

Value 'netman'

 

2)      Component Services > Computers > my computer > DCOM Config > "Netman" -> Security tab -> Open "Launch and activation Permissions" -> edit,

add 'LOCAL SERVICE' with 'Local Launch' and 'Local Activation' checked.

add 'NETWORK SERVICE' with  'Local Launch' and 'Local Activation' checked"

 

3)      Reboot the server after making the change.
