Disabled Internet, can't reconnect

So I disabled my Internet by pressing on the disable button. However for some weird reason I can't seem to reconnect again which doesn't make any sense to me. When I troubleshoot it says: "local area connection 2" doesn't have a valid In configuration.

My hardware is fine since it was working without any problems before I clicked on that button..

I've literally no idea what can cause this problem. Any help would be much appreciated!

you may have disabled the actual network adapter. trying searching "network connections" from start and see if your adapter is greyed out and disabled, if it is right click and enable.

if the above doesnt work...
go to the command prompt (right click and run as amin)
type ipconfig /release (hit return)
type ipconfig /renew (hit return)
give it a couple of seconds to rediscover and open IE. it will either connect of give the option to diagnose. if it doesnt connect then select diagnose it should then fix any errors.
if you get an error saying device has no valid ip you will need to contact your isp and get them to fix it there end as it may be a line error or a router issue.
