If the card can't be configured in the system prefs (IP,Subnet,Router and DNS) so maybe it's not supported.

Take a look what card it is and if it's working or not in the HCL wiki for 10.4.1.

If nothing works, try a cheap Realtek8139 for 5€ (these are working).

 

P.S: my english is not better ;)

you mean a Realtek8139 pcmcia?

I was meaning PCI, on many notebooks pcmcia is not working in OSX86.

Another solution for a notebook is a USB to Ethernet converter (only if USB works on your install). I saw it somewhere in this forum.

Yeah! I had the problem with my notebook and network/internet! So I bought a LinkSys USB200M Ethernet-USB-Adapter for just 25 Euro (in germany) and have now Network without any problems!

But you will need the unibin-drivers! Search in the forum!
