    my university provides a wired internet connection in our room, and today by accident I clicked the disable connection button and now no matter how many times I reconnect the cable, restart the computer and search for available networks it does not show up again

    fortunately as my room is right below the computer lab I can use the wireless service but its not as reliable/fast as the wired service (hence why I can post this)

    how would I get the network back or is this a question for the techies at the univeristy it office?

    I'm on windows vista btw

    You need to re-enable the wired network connection.

    Go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings
