Hi I got a strange problem with my ethernet controllers in XP SP3. I had a power brown out which accidentally shut off my computer, and since then I can't get my ethernet to work. I have already isolated the problem to my computer; not a network issue. I have an Asus motherboard with dual ethernet ports and with both I get the "network cable is unplugged" message. I tried an additional ethernet port on a PCI card and I have the same problem, & same message. In device manager, I have tried reinstalling drivers, disabling/enabling, and even uninstalling the devices. Then when I reboot all 3 controllers reappear with higher numbers such as "local area connection 9", "local area connection 10", local area connection 11", etc. Why is that? Any ideas what my problem might be? Could those higher numbers be the problem? Very frustrated.
