Ethernet port fried?

I was playing NHL using a wired connection today during a small thunderstorm. Lightning struck very close to my house and I was kicked off xbox live. It still says I am using a wired connection but I don't have an ethernet cable plugged in. Even when I do, it won't work. Everything else works with my router just fine, including my PC that is connected with an ethernet cable. Any suggestions?

Hi, if you have tried different cables and different ports on the router/modem then yes sadly I'd say it is fried :(

It is definitely fried. Best option is to sell on ebay/craigslist and buy a new one. Don't trade to Gamestop either. They offered me 60 bucks, including my 250 GB Hard Drive.
