Attached is a picture of my Device Manager. I don't see anything in there for Ethernet Adapter.
The Hughesnet tech had me do all kinds of things like go to cdmi and whatever else to try to get my wireless to connect to my d-link wireless.
I don't know if there was an Ethernet Adapter in the Device Manager prior to his help. I just know that prior to his help I was able to get on the internet

by attaching the cable direct from my Hughesnet modem to my port on my laptop. Is there a way to get Ethernet Adapter back in the Control Panel without taking 

the laptop to a store to get it repaired?
Thanks for your invaluable help!

Tony, in the picture it shows your Realtek PCIe adapter is disabled. Right click on it and choose enable then see if a cable connection works.

I typed out a long reply yesterday with a possible solution to your issue, but apparently when I did an edit it disappeared!

 

Try for the simple solution first. Click start and type ncpa.cpl (this is a shortcut to the network connections. You can also get to it through the 'Change adapter settings' in the network & internet settings.)

 

Make sure your ethernet connection is not greyed out. If it is, right click on it and hit enable. That should be the simple soution to your problem.

 

I have had an issue identical to this, and my proven way of fixing it is a long process to type out. So if your connection isn't disabled I will type it out for you!

If you look at the screenshot, you can see his network adapter "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" is disabled... Only requires he open his device manager, right click that field, and click enable.

As for the post that went missing, that happens sometimes, you might want to check this thread here out, it's long but has information you might find useful: https://community.hughesnet.com/t5/Your-Thoughts-on-the-Community/My-thoughts-on-the-Community/m-p/7...

I don't fully intend to highjack this thread, but I will do so willingly since the solution to the problem has been given with 98% probability.

 

 In that thread they discussed changing URLs being a trigger for auto-deletion. That must have been the case, since the edit was fixing an error in that ncpa.cpl filename I typed out. I guess we all have to be really careful when typing out full filenames from now on!

Dear friends,

I wish to thank you for your help. I typed up a response yesterday but do not see it in this thread now.
Anyway, yesterday I clicked on the little up arrow on the right side of my task bar to open up the little box to show my internet connection. It only showed Wi-fi. But there is a line Troubleshoot or Network settings. Can't remember which one it was but I clicked on one and Windows 10 went to a larger box asking me if I wanted to fix a connection problem or add another way to get on the internet (sorry, can't remember the words). So I let it set me up. The first question was "do you want to connect by Wi-fi?" or something like that? and I said to dismiss that and go on. Then it set me up to connect through my modem. Cool! Now I can connect to either Wi-fi or just directly connected to the modem.
In the future, if I have a similar problem I'll go directly to my Device Manager and enable the connection that way.
Thanks to all of you who took your valuable time to help me. I really do appreciate it!

That's good to know, as it shows that it's ANY post, and not just posts that contain Macros, that the system doesn't like when one makes an edit to a URL.  It's also good to know that the system is learning what can be trusted by how long someone has been posting on it.  Pretty slick.
