I believe LAN is the correct word for it. I have a Dell Latitude D630 and it came with Windows XP. Several months back, I put Linux on my laptop as a dual boot. My friend did pretty much everything, and apparently he reinstalled windows. Well, in the process my LAN (Or is it Ethernet) connection disappeared. I assume I'm missing a driver, but I don't know anything about which driver, or how to install drivers. Basically what happened is my Network connections only have Wireless connections, and my laptop does recognize when I plus a cord into it for internet. The wired connection DOES work in linux. Because my university has free WiFi, I didn't make a big effort to fix this problem, but now that I am home for the summer I have uses for a wired connections. truimagz(dot)com/hosting/scornic/Private/NetworkConnections(dot)jpg Any ideas? Just searching the Windows Driver site won't work for me. I tried that, I don't know the difference between the drivers.
