The message that it is has no network adapter and not configured. What's wrong???

I have a Gateway LX6810 - 01 desktop runnning windows Vista Edition Albums Home Premium, 64 bit, 8 GB of RAM, all the latest updates and Service Pack 2. I connect to the internet through the network connection AT & T Uverse high-speed broadband (12gbps). He worked for over two years now with no problems until now. All of a sudden one day after I rebooted the machine there is no internet connection. When I went to the network and sharing Center, I receive a message that there is no installed network devices. SO, I went to the Device Manager window and there is no device listed network but when I opened the "hidden devices" he has been. (Why it is hidden I have not the slightest idea). SO, I went to the BIOS and checked for if ensure the LAN has been "activated" and it WAS.  I don't always get the same message "no network installed devices. SO then I went on the website gateway and downloaded the driver LAN for my machine and my LAN and reinstalled the driver... I ALWAYS get the same message and I still have no Internet connetion. WHAT could be the problem? Although I consider myself relatively smart, I'm NOT a computer guru, so be kind and state your suggestions in the jargon of the 'no' then I'll understand. Thanks for your help. I'm out of ideas.
