What sort of network card is it?

BTW, both ifconfig and lspci live in /sbin. If you're trying to run them as a regular user, use their fully qualified names.

I typed SU and entered the root password to run the commands but they didn't work so I logged off and logged in a ROOT which is NOT recommended. ok Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114.
Thanks

'lspci' is a user command too : /sbin/lspci
'su' will do for ..
1) # system-config-network
2) # /sbin/ifconfig
