I'm guessing by hooking it up to your router, you wish to get it online. This will obviously be easier once you get your mouse (Wink), but basically if you have DSL you should be able to go into TCP/IP (located in the Control Panels) and select the ethernet card. Then select Using DHCP Server in the Configure menu. Close out, save settings, and you should be able to connect (provided that you have a browser). Hope that helps. :)

Apple PCI Ether-card?

Edit: Is that what it says on the card?

What options do you have in the "Connect via:" drop down menu near the top of the TCP/IP control panel window?

If you have a PCI ethernet card, one of the options should be "Ethernet" of some sort, possibly followed by "slot 0B" or something similar.

my solution is this:

go and buy a REALTEK ethernet card (8139x) where x is any letter (mine is D).

But wait, you might wonder, "this mac wont see a realtek card"

my solution: A realtek driver....

I've been using it for three years without a hitch, daily almost...

works great in 7.6.1

i'll upload it to my server tonight.

How is that specific card, and only that specific card, a solution?

I'm sure theres nothing wrong with the card he/she has now, he/she just has to be sure of what it is first by opening the computer and looking at it.
