Thanks for the response. At this point it is kinda a messy install so I am going to attempt to repair the install of the GPLPV drivers so it is fully operating including the xennet driver. Any idea what I would actually edit in the registry to re-enable just the qemu network card?

You can just not install xennet driver. If you have already installed you'll need to remove xennet and modify a few registry keys so that xenpci doesn't turn off the qemu network cards.

Been trying to get the GPLPV drivers working to help boost performance but always seem to run into one major issue: The PV network device looks like it works but actual connectivity is non-existant. Everything else in the GPLPV driver suite works fine.

While getting the core problem actually fixed would be cool, it is starting to look more and more like a host issue and, unfortunately, trying to get anything beyond real basic support tasks accomplished is like pulling teeth. And anything needing interaction with THEIR host I might as well be talking to a brick wall (This is more or less a case of 'You get what you pay for'. I'm willing to deal with the support issues as 99% I can sort on my own and the costs are hard to ignore. But this is besides the point and would rather not discuss what I am already aware of).
