I've read a couple of old posts about video cards causing Internet connection problems with no real fixes stated.
This has recently happened to me, And this is what I did to fix it and would like to know if I did a bad thing in the long run.

ok, I removed the old Nvidia video card with the power off and unplugged, I then installed the newer Nvidia 8800 GT card
(Not knowing I also needed a free 6 post power supply plug which I didn't have) when I re-installed the old card it was like I deleted all the drivers and network adapters for internet connection. So what I did to fix this issue was a system restore which for some reason didn't work. so I did a FPGA reset first, then did a system restore which DID work.
I did replace the FPGA bridge to its original position after the reset and restarted the system.

Now everything seems to be working ok, But did I do something that may cause problems later?
