There is nothing here that says Ethernet Controller so I'm surmising
that it's not being detected. Could you tell us what windows says the
network card is, or if you have the manual, what that says.

And above all society needs to encourage the spirit of voluntary
cooperation in its citizens. When software owners tell us that
helping our neighbors in a natural way is ``piracy'', they pollute
our society's civic spirit. - RMS
