Try delete the network adapter in device manager and check for new hardware again.

Please try the following:

Start
Run
services.msc
Look for the "Network Connections" service

Please report back here whether it is started or not, and what its startup type is.

re installing the adapters (wired and wireless) did the trick. Thank You!!!

Do you guys think that if the service "Network Connections" is inactive it can cause the adapters to disapear from the control panel / network connections settings??

next time. I will make sure to check that before anything..

Yes.  This is the description of the service:

Manages objects in the Network and Dial-Up Connections folder, in which you can view both local area network and remote connections.
