lol, that's what I thought, but I spent more then $15 of my time reinstalling and updating the ethernet drivers on my ASUS P4P800. Probably a totally different problem, but onboard ethernet problems seem somewhat common.
Your best bet is to uninstall all the drivers, reflash your bios with the latest version, then find all the latest drivers for your mobo and install those.
