Something strange is happening with my network adapter.

When I run the 'ipconfig' command, I receive the following:

>Windows IP Configuration

>An internal error occurred: A device attached to the system is not functioning.

>Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.

>Additional information: Unknown media status code.

I'm also seeing the MAC address of my wireless network adapter change on reboot. Not sure if this is a problem, or related.

Any thoughts?
