Intel PRO/1000 CT Network Adapter - Device Manager Error Code 43

Configuration Info:
Windows XP Pro - All Service Packs Installed
Intel Pro/1000 CT Network Adapter, Model 82547EI (http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/M675/3501731sp76.shtml)
Other Hardware: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/M675/3501731sp75.shtml

After my Gateway M675 notebook resumes from standby or hibernation Device Manager shows the Intel Pro/1000 CT Network Adapter has failed with error code 43.  I've determined the IRQ assignment gets changed from 18 (before standby) to 10 (after resuming from standby).  Generally the IRQ reassignment occurs if the notebook is left in standby for 6 hours or more, otherwise the notebook resumes from standby with the Network Adapter retaining it's IRQ 18 assignment and functioning properly.  The only way I've been able to recover the Network Adapter is to reboot.

I have been unable to find a way to force the Network Adapter to always use a specific IRQ or prevent the IRQ from being reassigned.  This adapter is directly connected to the MCH of the Intel® 875 chipset and cannot be moved, to the best of my knowledge.

Any ideas or solutions?

If the BIOS has Plub-N-Play enabled, disable it.

I had the same problem and disabled the plug and play, but my network controller still has a question mark (and I have downloaded all of the drivers, but it just can't find it)
