Our house/garden was struck by lightning last week, which fried 2 TV's, VCR and all of our network devices!

Our ADSL modem, hub, 2 PC network cards and the xbox have all been fried.

The xbox was turned off at the time, but was still connected to the network. It still works perfectly as a stand-alone xbox, but the network card/components do not. I know the xbox has integrated network components on the main board, so it wont be easy to replace.

If this has happened to anyone else, or anyone has in-depth knowledge of the network components, i would be very grateful of any help.
