Thx for the heads up there. Worked fine till the storm which is why I suspect 
storm damage.

I've come to the same conclusion re replacing it. Finally got a reason to 
ditch windows 100% on the last sys with a printer/scanner that will work with 
ubuntu (new) which is all that stopped me there. Think I'll go the hub and 
modem approach as I can connect more pc's that way
