Are you certain there were no updates installed? Usually if something suddenly stops working, there's a reason why.

What BIOS revision do you have? Are you running A16?

Another forum user said he got the ethernet controller working by using the Broadcom Ethernet NIC NetXtreme Desktop Driver, found here:

Broadcom.com - Ethernet NIC NetXtreme Desktop Driver Downloads

Here's the forum thread:

Dell Latitude D600 Windows 7 Drivers needed

Is that the driver you found? I'm stumped as to why things stopped working. Have you checked your BIOS settings to make sure nothing was disabled?
