As to the lights on the nic it could be that the settings have already been deleted by the storm. Usually you have to log on to each device if it has a ethernet connector and see each state and then rebuild. Remember that your devices may have been configured quite differently that stock. For example I reset my modem to act as a passthough and I let the router connect. A reset button would have me set that all back.
