When it comes to PC's, I do alright...but I'm not expert. Anyway, my internet connection was working fine 2 days ago, yesterday it wasn't working at all. I called my ISP, and they said everything was fine on their side. One thing I thought was weird was that I couldn't connect from my PC to my router. The guy told me that it may be my network card, but that he wouldn't help me with that since he wasn't a hardware tech and didn't want to be responsible for ruining my PC. My network card is part of the motherboard...so I took apart an old PII I have here and pulled the network card out of it and put it into this machine. Long story short...question is, will my internet connection be hindered at all by this card? Would a newer network card be of any benifit? the card that is in there now is a Compaq NC3121 Fast Ethernet NIC.
