On my desktop, for the last several years I have used some Netgear "wall-plugged bridge" devices to connect to the internet. There is one near the modem with an ethernet running to the modem, and another near my computer with an ethernet cable running to my computer.
The devices have 3 lights indicating whether or not they are working. One for whether it is plugged in (has power, another for whether it is receiving a signal from the other device in the house, and the last one is whether it is actively connected to an ethernet port.
The device currently works fine when I boot into OSX, but when I boot up windows 7 (tried many times), 2 of the lights immediately turn off (they are on until the moment it boots into windows). The power light (indicating that it is plugged in and receiving power) remains on.
Why on earth, after years of working fine, would the devices suddenly stop working with windows, but perform flawlessly in OSX?
