Did you get PDANet from the official repository (ModMyi)? An old version of this package was known to cause this problem, but the newer version shouldn't.

You may need to restore your device actually - that's the only solution that the people in this thread found. You can make iTunes recognize it by putting it into DFU mode, and then you can restore it.
