Asus on their ftp has drivers for this 3com setup, if you dont have support already. I know on my system, it had drivers for it, just didnt recognize it, so I had to manually set it up. What I did was added "3c2000" to /etc/modules at the end (no quotes of course), restarted the connection, and rebooted. On start up, it recognized my NIC then.
