Having problems with your IBM PC Laptops ?

Ethernet Ports stopped working

\015 Hi, I have a Lenovo T60 laptop, and the Ethernet ports have stopped working. I have reinstalled and updated the drivers, upgraded the BIOS, and wiped the machine and reloaded Windows XP on it. It isn't a hardware problem, and there is nothing wrong with the network or ethernet cables. Wireless still works. Any ideas?Thanks.\015
