    Error of such type “Cannot find Network Adapter” raises when your Network Adapter is not enabled. You need to enable it by following these simple steps.

    STEP 1: Go to Start >> Control Panel.
    STEP 2: Type “Adapter” in the Search box.
    STEP 3: Go to Network and Sharing Center.
    STEP 4: Click “View Network Connections”.
    STEP 5: Right - Click on the Icon and select “Enable”.
    STEP 6: If asked for administrator password give password.
    STEP 7: If asked for confirmation, re enter the password and confirm the password.

    and to fixing of the issue is simple that is

    windows key+r

    Type in Run like
    ncpa.cpl and press ENTER key

    and check for the
    Network adopter ....and if you are unable to find the Network adapter means which gets deleted

    other wise double click on the
    Adopter ICon and click Enable button

    and for the deletion cause..........
    re- install the network adopter By using the mother board CD/DVD ( if you have already)

    other wise ...go and search in the internet ....and download the network Drivers and install .

    Uninstall the drivers for the device from device manager and then install the drivers from the manufacturer’s website and check if that helps.

    a) Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.* If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    a) Double-click Network Adapters, right-click your adapter, and then click Properties.
    b) Click the Driver tab, and then click uninstall.
    Once you uninstall the drivers download and install the drivers from the computer manufacturer’s website.

    all the best
