    Yes, it has either three or four slots(depending upon the motherboard) which you can use for installing the ethernet card. Hope this answers your query.

Internet connection problem My older Compaq evo tower suddenly stopped connecting to the internet tried an other wire still nothing an even older computer connects fine what could be my problem


redux 1.facts emerge.
Ethernet port dead, router ok other PC work there.
unknown card stated, of the 4 .
mint version v18. Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon
be important and even kernal version. 4.4.0-17?
HP EVO D510. year made 2002, even sold with
windows 2000, so old . 16 years old today,
(no spring chicken, and most new OS fail on all 16year old PCs, for good reasons, no new drivers)

it came new with these.
which one do you have.? PCI card.

Integrated Intel PRO/100 VM network connection
3COM 3C905C-TX network connection
Intel PRO/100 S management adapter
Broadcom NetXtreme based 10/100/1000 management Gb adapter

at the Linux command prompt
type
lspci -nn -v (enter) the 2 spaces are mandatory.

see this. in the stream of acts see ethernet pop.
(we can do this this in windows and linux now)

http://www.pcdied.com/example-nn-v.JPG

what is in that slot is anyone's guess, 100's of card there possible.
what I do is open the case side and look
read the card words there, stamped on it,
3com cards are JUNK, HP does not support it now.
(they own it and killed it, wiki HP buys 3COM 2010)
i think linux avoids it for the same reasons.
(reason HP does not make drivers for this card now nor host the old, dead as door nail it is)


what mint? V18 ,ok.
what card is there.

I'd run Ubuntu v16, with a NIC card they like.
Intel card
broadcom
Realtek
tops my list.

the Linux kernal is complied with some NIC cards.
only ,each version is different and very hard to pry this info from them.
sadly,

i see mint fails even on a new ASUS board
with Realtek RTL8111F
a vary common chip
the helper says kernal 4.5 might work.
but that is for newer chips never the old

https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmint/comments/4f09o5/no_ethernet_with_linux_mint_173_cinnamon/


let me tell you how Kernels are built.
they delete old chips is the rule!
the newer kernals delete the chips used 10 years ago or older,
why
so the kernal is not full of 1000s of useless chip drivers,, making it huge.
reason #2, how can a new Kernal be tested on 100s more dead CHIPs, (dead means not sold, not found now) Impossible, endless task that would be and is not done, same rules MS PNP use.same reasons.


now that you know that
the learn what card you have,
you then ask the mint guys, what kernal
worked on that old card.
(if lucky some poor sod can remember that long ago and answer.

why not buy $20 PC used at GOODwill and is 2007 or newer, be really wise choice.
that is my full and long answer.
if you had told the nic card there, answers go faster.

so brave up see that CAT5 cable on rear of PC
where does it go?
inside,
if a card , what card?, only what card matters.
or buy new one that is supported, for say $10

Module: x3200m2 type:4368 i1s server how many lan (ethernet) ports are available for usage


Number of all ports available: Six USB; Ethernet,two serial,parallel and Video.
One x8 high-speed PCI-E adapter slot offers investment protection by supporting high-performance adapters, such as Ethernet, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand cards, none of which will run in older conventional PCI slots.
The x3200 M2 includes one integrated Broadcom 5722 Gigabit Ethernet controller for up to 10X higher maximum throughput than a 10/100 Ethernet controller. In addition, the 5722 supports IPMI-over-LAN.

How can i get my internet to work on my labtop with no ethernet ?


You can purchase a usb Ethernet adapter that plugs into the side of your laptop. You could buy a wireless card that could fit into your computers card slot.

If you mean that you don't have Ethernet in your home you could go wireless and use whatever free access you might find. Check out an electronics store for improvised attachments. Many types are available.

Install drivers for ethernet card or buy a usb to ethernet adapter. That will get you on the net so you can install your other drivers via thinkvantage installer. Or you can just cruise the net with the usb to ethernet adapter itself.

Compaq Preario SR 1208AN ethernet connector faulty


Have you spent about $5 and tried a different Ethernet cable?

Look at: http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00251993/c00251993.pdf

For your desktop computer, the Ethernet adapter is integrated into the motherboard. So, to replace the connector, you will have to replace the motherboard, costing over $200, unless your computer is still eligible for service via the HP warranty.

It would be much easier & cheaper (under $20) to purchase a PCI Ethernet card, install it into an empty PCI slot, install the software from the CD-ROM that came with the card, and connect the Ethernet cable to this card, rather than to the integrated socket.

Questions about replacing ethernet card on my Dell desktop


Any ethernet card will work fine. Just be sure it's the fit's the correct slot. You probably have a "white" slot which is a pci slot. If it's a longer "black" slot then it's isa. More than likely it came from a pci slot. Before you buy one, confirm the type of slot. In additon, before installing it go to control panel and system settings, hardware, device manager and remove the old one by right clicking it and select delete or remove. Shut down the computer follow instructions for new card.
Probably will have to install the drivers first then shut down and install the new card. Good Luck.

Dell ethernet card


You must buy a pci spec'ed Ethernet care. This will fit into the white socket on the system worse case you go buy a USB based ethernet adapter.
