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

Please try the following:

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..
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
