6120 - no connections listed, how to restore or ad...

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
In Nokia Connection Manager on my computer (Nokia PC Suite > Settings > Manage connections), it says "activate a connection type by selecting a check box.  You can edit the highlighted connection by clicking the Configure button."
There are no connection types listed.  The box is empty.  There are no options to add new connections, and the spanner icon is greyed out.  My phone will not connect to the computer as it used to.
I think this started when I installed an update to Ovi recently - I haven't been able to connect my phone to the computer since then, though it has taken me a while to work out where I think the problem lies and come here for help.
I have uninstalled both Nokia PC Suite and the Ovi program, and have downloaded a fresh copy of PC Suite and installed it, hoping that this would restore the connections but it hasn't.  I haven't reinstalled Ovi.
How can I get past this and connect my phone to my computer once again?
Kind Regards,
Wendy Howard

Big change OVI messed up the drivers. Use PCSuite Cleaner to remove all Nokia related software. Install PCSuite and connect the 6120 when you're asked.
