    If you can't see the LAN connection listed under Network Connections, your friend probably uninstalled the driver.

    1) Open Device Manager. Do you see the network adapter? Rt click and uninstall
    2) Now go to the support site for your computer (e.g. Dell, HP, ASUS, etc) download the network driver and reinstall it

    Also check Computer Browser and Network Connections under services.msc. These two need to be enabled and started.
