Lost Properties Icons In Network & Dial-UP Connections Properties Window

I have W2k Server with 2 Nics, Intel 10/100/1000 and Broadcom 10/100/1000.

A few months after setting up the server(s), have file, web, Tserver, and Comm server for dialing out; I noticed in the properties window of the Network & Dial-Up connections that when I tried to access the properties areas of the nics the window would close and access was unavailable.

Now there are no icons in this area for the file server.

LAN runs okay - I just am concerned about not having access to these areas and would like to restore the options.

Client is in a different city, so I am leary about making changes over the net.  I am moving the whole network to another location and would like to address this matter.  can anyone help.

thanks,

btw - servers are DELL and Switch is DELL (which was replaced just recently); client was having problems with electricity and the servers went down a couple of times this past summer - did advice client about UPS, but as always wasn't in the budget until something goes wrong.

What about access to the cards thru the device mgr.
if you can afford the downtime, I would uninstall these drivers and items completely from the system thru the device mgr.
then check for any available drivers from Intel Chipset and Broadcom.
reinstall updates
reboot

I'm thinking that there is communication error with the driver file and your system inf file

you could also run
sfc /scannow from the command line to check for any system files that could have been corrupted or replaced.

I need to drive up to Nogales - while there 1 week ago, the icons for the Nics reappeared, after I moved the servers from one location to another (powered down and powered up again)  but everytime I try to access the properties it kicks me out of the Network properties console.

any suggestions as to why it kicks me out?

My apologies - I have been quite busy.  I have not been able to make these changes - as I mentioned in the beginning my client is in Arizona, I am in Texas....  It takes my client a while before they decide to pay for the trip out there.  So far it's working okay -I am just not able to access the properties for the nics.   I am just waiting for the okay - when I first posted I was hoping to get an answer before I returned from Arizona.  But your post came two days after I arrived back to Texas.  Thanks.
