R61e - BroadCom Ethernet Adapter

Recently, after returning from being out of town for a week, I discovered my wireless router was not working.  After attempting to reconnect with no luck I purchased a new router today.   I successfully connected the modem, router and pc and attempted to run the software for the wireless NetGear router.  Here is the message I get:


No Adapter



The Ethernet adapter is either disabled or no Ethernet adapter is installed on this computer. Either enable or add an Ethernet adapter and run the application again.


In checking the adapter in Device Manager it IS ENabled.   Using the Thinkvantage Productivity Center I updated the adapter and I still get the same message.  Obviously the wired connection is working (as I'm here!).


Any suggestions?


NOTE:  While I was away I used TETHER between my BlackBerry and laptop to connect to the internet.  I noticed, of course there is a new TETHER adapter listed in Device Manager.  I have disabled that in case it was having some affect on the Broadcom, but that made no difference.
