Can't View Network Connections

By DouglasB ·
I'm running WIN XP PRO, SP2 installed. Everything ok for weeks, but today when I click on "Display All Connections" to view my network connections I get an error message stating "There is no association" for this link. I have tried getting there through control panel, nothing happens, also tried right click on My Network Places, selecting "properties," still nothing.

Have you tried double-clicking MNP and clicking through your domain and into any groups? Can you ping your server? Check your hubs, switches, and routers. Sometimes a port may begin to fail, where it will blink intermittently orange, then green. It gives the Workstation the illusion everything is all right until the port gets worse. Is your workstation really on the network? Or could it be running a cached image? Need more info here.

Sorry, I did not make my question clear. I am connected to the network, just can't open the window to show my network connections, i.e., the adapter(s).

Thanks, Blackcurrent. I now know that *.cpl files are the control panel applets. I am not at the computer with the problem, but can I assume that the ncpa.cpl file is missing or damaged? If this is the case, can I copy the file from another XP Pro computer to the non-working computer and fix the problem? I see that by double clicking on any *.cpl file from explorer that it will open it.

I checked my *.cpl files and the one for the network settings is there, but it does not work. I tried copying the file from another XP Pro machine but that did not fix the problem.
