Graphic Update removed my ethernet driver?


I was updating my Graphics driver (Nvidia Geforce GT 440) today and it asked me to update the other NVIDA things as well that I have. Apparently one was an Nvidia Nforce ethernet driver or something... So pretty much I chose yes. "Installed the Nvidia Network Forceware" thing it said. All of a sudden, my icon down at the bottom right went to a yellow caution sign (Limited/no Connectivity)... Thats where I'm stuck. I tried some of the following:

Uninstalled that Nvidia Network Forceware thing
Went to Device manager and played a little with it from other forums. (This is how I got my "Caution sign" first it wasn't even showing my local network connection.)
System Restored about 7 times...

Nothing is working and I really don't know what to do about this situation.


Microsoft XP
Version 2002
Srvc Pack 3

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 5000+
2.61 GHz, 2.00 GB of RAM
Physical Address Extension

Problem persisted:
After Installing 15.45_nforce_winxp32_international_whql and accepted every install.

Problems being experienced:
Internet connection is not working when connected directly to my modem. (I'm typing this on my laptop connected to the same modem, so it is infact the computer doing it.)

Please help... My computer is not only used by me... Thanks if you can help :p
