Default nic missing atfter install of sp2

After install of sp2 the nic is missing from
Device Manager.
Also, Network Connections is empty.
BUT my network is working, I can connect to
other systems in my network and wan.
The only thing that does not work is:
I can't connect to this system from other systems.

There are some old KB articles about network problems
but those fixes do not work.
