I have an nVidia motherboard with intergrated ethernet, suddenly I can't get my ethernet to work. The adapter looks fine in the device manager, with proper drivers. The Ethernet cable is plugged into an active router.

Things were fine till I un-bridged the 1394 and ethernet connections.. Now it's a mess

Motherboard is a K7N2 Delta nVidia, (link with info about it is here http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=436)
with AMD 2400 proc,
running Windows XP Pro,
Networking with a D-Link 704 router (link with info about it is here http://www.littlewhitedog.com/content-44.html)

WHen you say no network connection do you mean that the "Network Connections" folder is empty?

Well the first thing you should do is uninstall and reinstall the driver for your network card. Download the driver for your network card, then go to device manager and right click on your network card and uninstall

If you don't know the model of your network card then download this file
