Did you uninstall the patch that caused this issue?

Also, if XP, Vista what happens if you use System Restore to yesterday?

try to right click on your lan connection in the network prefs. and enable it. I have seen it being disabled (for reasons only known to God & MICROSOFT)

also go into the device manager and check if your network card has no conflicts or corrupt drivers
