Actually yea you are right I don't have an Ethernet card but the motherboard that I bought has and ethernet port in the back and it said that It has 10/100 lan support maybe I misread this, but looks like I have not ben able to locate the enable comand in this board for the ethernet port, maybe that is part of my problem and I'm not sure how to enable this port , I was in Fry's today(large electronic retailers here in Seattle) and I was looking at some other options but could not come to the conclusion of which network card to use, which card should I get to conect to the modem ?? ethernet is that 10/100 lan? and my next question is how do I install the drivers that are posted on your respond?? can you type up some of the commands that I need to put on the command line log in as root to intall the drivers ??? where do I copy them too?? should I contac action tech the maker of the modem and see if they have a network card that would work with their modem?? this modem also has a wireless option but I have had such a difficult time with just the wired connection that I am nervous to wonder in to the world of wire less... but they may have a pci card with the card that connects to the modem wireless ?? only a bit of food or thought sooo now I am open to your suggestions....

thanks a bunch....

Here is the card I use,works great;
http://shop3.outpost.com/product/270...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG
You can use it later if you set up a home network so it will be money well spent.
Your nice comp(64bit)is a little ahead of the people that get the drivers into the kernels,but it won't be long,grab that card and you will be on the net in no time.
See if you can disable the onbaord lan for the time being in the bios.Put the card in and do the same as we did before and it should show up.If it shows up as eth0 try;
dhcpcd eth0 then
ping www.google.com -c 3 to see if it works
Most modems use dhcp,How do you connect with windows dhcp or pppoe?
