I appreciate your help. In my post you will see that the adapter does not show up in the Device Manager. That points to a complete failure of the adapter. I did the driver reinstall but of course that didn't work as there is no hardware to attach it to.
I am looking for some way to confirm the adapter is dead?
Also, I am asking about possibly replacing the adapter? Any experience with this?
