Internet not working with PCMCIA card

I have a PCMCIA card that plugs into the side of a laptop with a plugin for ethernet using dsl internet. It is not wireless. That hardware works under the Ubuntu 5.04 Live CD. When I tried to use the hardware under Ubuntu installed on the HDD, the hardware did not work. I really hope this problem has a good reasonable solution to get Ubuntu 5.04 working on the laptop with the hardware. The card is an Etherx IC PC Card. On the card, it says Kingston Technology and Ethernet Adapter. The model number is KNE-PC2T. On the back of the card under the model number, it says this ASSY.# 9920229-001.A01. I do not know what that is. How can I get this hardware working with Ubuntu 5.04 installed? Maybe I will try Ubuntu 5.10. I checked the HCL on this forum. There is nothing for my hardware. Thanks for help.

Here is 2 pictures of it.

first try pluging the card in and see if the comp. detects it by typing


if the device shows up it should just be a matter of starting the driver module, or downloading it and starting it.

I think the driver is called tulip for this card, from a quick search??

so try

#modprobe tulip



to see if your device shows up.

otherwise get the device info from lspci and search the net for a driver or the driver name for the driver which may be included with Ubuntu.
