Thanks for popping in, Kurenai...my internet went down a little after 6:30 last night. Sorry to you, Rollett...I hope you didn't feel I had abandoned you.

I'm coming to the same conclusion as Kurenai, though. Try Windows Update...do the Custom option and check for hardware updates that may be available from Microsoft. Sometims there are patches available there that aren't available on the other websites.

Try to connect your router to the "bad" connection. Is it working? If it does then your problem might be in the xbox. If it doesn't try srart > run > cmd > ping router IP (you can find the router IP in ipconfig /all)

Ethernet adapter {01735991-7195-4FDD-A8B7-DE0570F7ECEF}:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller
#2 - Packet Scheduler Miniport
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-30-18-A0-24-01

I get this if i do IPconfig /all (for this network port)

To add to this.. if i try to repair my current connection, It will pop up a window saying it repaired but has the cancel button and wont close... every time.

Still I would connect the router to the "faulty " port and try an ipconfig /all and ping the router. Also enter network connections > click the problematic one > properties > tcp/ip > properties. Make sure that the connection is set to get IP and DNS automatically. If that doesn't help then I would uninstall the driver in device manager and load it afresh from the motherboard driver disk. If all this doesn't help then I would conclude that the port or its controller are faulty.

If no light is coming on when you use a known good ethernet cable to connect that port to a known good port, then the port itself is broken. That light occurs regardless of anything in Windows, to show that there is a physical connection in place.

The ipconfig doesn't show your gateway which is the router. Many times the gateway IP is 10.0.0.138. try to ping 10.0.0.18 and tell us what happens.

Since you mentioned that you also lost the firewire port and it's icon I think that the next step should be a windows xp repair. How to this is described in details in this link. The truth is that I don't like this repair at all since quite often you end up with more problems than you started with.

If you repair xp you will have to download and reinstall all windows updates and possibly some hardware drivers.

Before starting please uninstall or at leasy disable antivirus and other antimalware programs which run in the background.
