I just rebooted my system and now the Network connection is hanging.

The Network icon shows NO connections. When I hover the cursor over the Icon, there is NO response (from the little pop up window). When I attempt to click on the Icon, there is NO response.

BTW, system is running Vista Home, w/3GB memory, dual-processor CPU and no other known issues.

What would cause the system to hanging on Network Connections upon reboot ?

Any hardware/ software changes? No.

Have you tried a system restore to before the problem occurred? No.

Wired or wireless connection? Wireless.

Have you run your antispyware/antivirus app to flush out any potential corruptions ? Not yet.

You cannot access the internet at all? No.

So try a restore.
Then antispyware:
Then let's see this:
From a Johnwill post on the Networking Forum

Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
