am suffering with a peculiar problem, i have UBUNTU and WINDOWS installed in my harddisk, internet in ubuntu just seems to work fine, but when it comes to windows internet is not working, and a peculiar thing i have observed is, that the LED for LAN on the modem is also not glowing.

At first i thought it might be the ETHERNET drivers problem so, i uninstalled and reinstalled the ETHERNET drivers but no use.........


please help

thanks a lot in advance
