I created a bridge connection with LAN and Wireless Adapter via Windows 7; works out ok for me and I decided to remove it.

After removing, I can't seem to detect my LAN connection (diagnosing the LAN connection shows cable unplugged/disconnected) albeit Wireless is still working fine.

I tried disabling/enabling the LAN adapter, restart to no avail. When I switch my connection to another port on my switch, the LAN connection is able to connect. So I try experimenting again by creating a Network Bridge, delete it and again my LAN connection became undetectable!

Could this have caused the port to be locked out by the switch?
