    Help! I can't figure this out. Any ideas appreciated.

    My onboard LAN suddenly stopped working (Gigabyte 667 Ultra2 mb). No
    Internet, no Local Area Network. Nothing.

    Only precipitating event - I just popped in a new video card (Sapphire
    Radeon 9100 AGP; latest drivers on Win XP Pro Service Pack 1). That's
    it. Nothing else was changed.

    Now, when I look at the network cable plugged into the back of the PC,
    the two indicator lights on the Lan port are green steady/yellow
    flashing. And *no* LAN related functions work. XP's Hardware Device
    Manager says all drivers are enabled & functioning.

    Is this a wake issue? Perhaps the new video card tricked the onboard
    lan (82540EM Intel chip) into permanent sleep? If so, how do I wake
    this thing back-up?

    Many thanks,

    J Greenman

    P.S. I'm using a SURFBoard cable modem connection (Comcast), plus a
    Linksys SR41 router - & my other PCs work fine. I plugged the problem
    PC into a working PC's network cable. Still no go. Tried plugging
    into other router ports (that work on the other PCs) - no go. Tried
    restarting both router/cable modem - working PCs still work, troubled
    PC doesn't.

    In summary, NOTHING has changed other than the video card/Radeon
    driver install. What could this be? Like the title says, I'm majorly
    stumped. Any ideas? I need to hear 'em.
