How do you get it to recognize the ethernet card? It is the original card. It was hooked up to the intenet at work but when I took it home it does not recognize that it has an ethenet card under the system profile page.

Re: Does not recognize the built in ethernet card.
First question is, what version of OS X are you running? Second,
Can you go into your system preferences, select network prefs, and next to SHOW, choose Network Status and verify That BUILT-IN ETHERNET is recognized?

I take it you mean your ethernet (network) card has stopped working? This is a common fault, especially with ports that are built into the motherboard. I suggest you buy and fit a PCI plug in network card--- not expensive and hook your ethernet cable to that. Modern Windows operating systems should have no problem detecting the new card and installing a driver automatically. Be aware that if you do this you may have to contact Microsoft to re-activate your Windows, as the MAC address you are using will have changed.
Sounds like the integrated ethernet port has gone bad. You can install a new ethernet card in one of the PCI expantion slots. Then plug the ethernet into the new card, this should take care of the problem. You can not repair a bad integrated ethernet port.
All PS3s have built in wireless, so you don't need an extra card. just connect to a wireless access point or hook it up with a ethernet cord. now if you are talking about hooking the PS3 up to the internet using the USB cord, than that is not supported.
First make sure the card (if a stand alone card ) is properly set in place (you'll have to open the computer and manually test it . Do this with the computer off!). If this is not the case or, you have the card built into the motherboard, you should re-install the drivers from your original installation CD. Otherwise you may need a friend or, atrip to a library/colleg etc, to download the proper drivers.
Windows doesn't detect Ethernet connected devices. You could hook up a dozen Ethernet Modems and Windows would not see any of them, but they all would work fine using TCP/IP. It is not like you installed the DSL Modem/Router inside the case of the PC. You do know how Ethernet works, right? The only driver needed is the correct one for your Ethernet card, but that comes the Ethernet Card or the Motherboard Drivers CD for onboard Ethernet.
Found a few things, here are some websites to try:
Most laptops you can just flip them over and open an access panel. Usually just 2 or 3 screws are all that stand in your way. Some laptops like 1000 Model HP's require you to remove the entire plastic panel on the bottom. You will recognize the wireless card inside by two distinct cables that attach to two corners of it. It is usually 1.5 x 1.5 inches big and will have one cable hooked to main and one to auxillary. These cards are available for purchase online if you google internal wireless cards notebook. There may be other types out there but i run into this one almost every time!
it's the card itself. It probably went bad. Go to Walmart and pick one up for about $15. I had this happen a few weeks ago, All cables are good just wouldn't connect to internet. It's the ethernet card itself, they do go bad.
One thing you might want to check is your firewall settings. Not the windows firewall but 3rd party firewall like Norton Internet Security. It will block your connection if it detects a different network. Also check the LED lights on the router, if you plug in an ethernet cable, does the light lite up on the corresondping Lan.
