Boot to Win XP leaves 64Studio without net connection


Hi, my desktop is dual boot XP and 64Studio, wired to wireless router and cable modem.
XP has no net access (only used for a few games)

Recently enabled internet on XP for online gaming but decided against it so disabled network again.

Now when I boot into 64Studio there is no internet connection. My laptop still has wireless net connection through router.

I can re-enable internet access for 64Studio by booting a live CD first (usually Mepis 8) and then reboot to 64Studio, then all will work properly for every subsequent reboot unless windows is started, then I need a live CD again.

I have tried various live CDs, Mepis 8, Ubuntu, Debian, all reactivate eth0

I tried # ethtool eth0 | grep Link after a windows reboot and no link detected, but link detected after a live cd reboot.

Any ideas how to make 64Studio activate the link?

Hope all that makes sense, thanks.

Please post output of
Code:
# ifconfig
Did you build your own kernel? Could you left out support for your ethernet card? If it is a module, is it loaded?

Booted into windows, select restart, boot into 64Studio

Code:
cpc3-mapp4-0-0-cust472:/home/glen# ifconfig

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

Restart from 64Studio, boot Mepis 8 Live, restart, boot back into 64Studio

Code:
cpc3-mapp4-0-0-cust472:/home/glen# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:19:DB:F3:0A:41
          inet addr:192.168.2.2  Bcast:192.168.2.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: fe80::219:dbff:fef3:a41/64 Scope:Link

          Interrupt:17 Base address:0xe000

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
The 64Studio is just the standard install from DVD.

Everything has worked fine until a week ago when I activated/deactivated internet access in XP.

Thanks
