Network Card works in Suse 10.2, but now not in Windows


I recently installed SuSE 10.2 and everything works fine. But ever since intsalling it, when I'm working in XP, I get a "network cable unplugged" error. I've unloaded the driver in Windows and re-installed and still nada. Is it possible that SuSE has changed something on my motherboard that could cause this?

ASUS K8V-X

It works great in Linux. That's the only way I'm able to post here. I really don't mind it not working in XP. The only reason I still have Windows is because of my job, I have to have AutoCAD/Building Systems/Architectural Desktop. I've tried to get them to work within WINE, but had no luck.

very strange thing happened. last night we had a power surge/brown/something and the GFI circuit that runs my computer tripped and caused my computer/modem/router all to shut off. When I un-tripped the outlet and powered everything back up, it worked in windows. I'm almost afraid of booting back to linux, but It's killing me to find out what's going on so I'm sure I will when I get home.

Windows is very finicky(sp*) about network connections. Usually what you have to do is shut everything down. AFter that you would power up your modem and then your router and then your computer. Do it in that exact order and it should take care of your problem.

Regards,

Brandon

p.s. The reason why Linux picks it up is because it's better.
