Answers :

Hi,
\015\012so you had a 4600, and the network card stopped working. You bought another 4600, and that network card doesn't work either? That's pretty amazing. If you have to buy a network card, you should be able to find one really cheap at any store that sells computer equipment. Radio Shack, Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot, all of them should sell a PCI network card for about $30 or less. If you have a local computer shop, you can probably get one for about $10 or less. I'm guessing that you could get the integrated network adapters in the 4600's working with some work... it's up to you. Let me know.
I think you just need to install the right drivers for the hardware:
