This is a PCI Network Card. It plugs into a PCI expansion slot on your computer. You will need to install the drivers for this network card to work properly.

\015\012How to install a network card\015\012\011\011 \015\012\011\011 \015\012\011\015\012\015\012 Some newer computers come with network interfaces built in - your\015\012 machine carefully for a socket that looks like a large telephone\015\012 socket with a network_symbol.jpg next to it. These are sometimes hidden behind a\015\012 flap or on the corner of your laptop next to the modem socket.
\015\012\015\012 If you haven't got a network interface already on your machine\015\012 you will have to install a network interface card. These are\015\012 available to buy from the IT Service Desk.

  • USB Adaptors simply plug into a USB port.
  • \015\012
  • PCMCIA Cards for laptops slot in a free PCMCIA slot on the\015\012 side of your machine.
  • \015\012
  • PCI Cards are a bit more fiddly and require you to open up your\015\012 machine.
  • \015\012
  • We advise that you use a USB adaptor for ease of installation
\015\012\015\012\015\012 \015\012Instructions on how to fit a PCI network interface card.\015\012
  1. Shut down Windows and then turn the computer off and unplug it. Never \015\012 work in your computer's insides with the power on or the power cord plugged \015\012 in!
  2. \015\012
  3. Remove\015\012the cover from your computer. There are normally a number of screws on\015\012the outside of the case to remove. Put the screws someplace where they\015\012won't wander off.
  4. \015\012
  5. Find an unused expansion slot inside the computer.\015\012 The expansion slots are lined up in a neat row near the back of the computer. \015\012 All new computers have at least three or four slots known as PCI slots.
  6. \015\012
  7. Many older computers also have several slots known as ISA slots. You can \015\012 distinguish ISA slots from PCI slots by noting the size of the slots. PCI \015\012 slots are smaller than ISA slots, so you can't accidentally insert a PCI card \015\012 in an ISA slot or vice versa. Figure 2 shows the different types of slots. PCI slots are white, ISA slots are black
  8. \015\012
  9. When you find the right type of slot that doesn't have a card\015\012 in it, remove the metal backplate from the back of the computer's\015\012 chassis. A small retaining screw holds the backplate in\015\012 place. Remove the screw, pull the backplate out, keep it in a safe\015\012 place in case you ever want to remove the network card.
  10. \015\012
  11. Insert the network card into the slot.\015\012 Line up the connectors on the bottom of the card with the connectors in the \015\012 expansion slot, and then press the card straight down. Sometimes you have to \015\012 press uncomfortably hard to get the card to slide into the slot.
  12. \015\012
  13. Ignored the little cable that came with the card, you can\015\012 chuck this in the bin. It is a Wake-On-LAN connector and isn't\015\012 required for your card to work.
  14. \015\012
  15. Secure the network card with the screw that you removed in Step 4.
  16. \015\012
  17. Put the computer's case back together.\015\012 Watch out for the loose cables inside the computer; you don't want to pinch \015\012 them with the case as you slide it back on. Secure the case with the screws \015\012 that you removed in Step 2.
  18. \015\012
  19. Turn the computer back on.

Does it mean that it does not have the ethernet network capability. Easy. Buy a 10/100/100 ethernet card for the computer and after opening the side panel fix it into the available slot on the motherboard (the should preferably be plug and play in Windows that you are running). Then boot up. If the card is recognized by Windows, allow it to detect the card and load its drivers, else, insert the CD that comes with it and install the drivers. Reboot and allow Windows to detect the card and load its drivers You will get a msg in the right bottom corner of the screen to say "Your new HW has been installed and is ready for use". Now you are on.
