Dear BBB,
try this first...


enter or edit service tag numger...click on that and let the program to the right detect you tag number and it will tell you exactly what drivers you need for that particular computer.
I would save all of the drivers to desktop and then run them. In the first group of drivers there is in application an app called driver reset tool...that look interesting if you have any problem.
Now to answer your question, YES you can add a network adapter card to a PCI slot and it will trump the one on the board.
Yes you can always buy a cheap Ethernet card from any computer store near you, check the ethernet card from Linksys, Netgear, Dlink and other known networking device manufacturer...
