    pci ethernet card inquiry
    hi all....according to the genius at Apple, I lost the ethernet part of my logic board. He said it was $800 to replace the logic board or I could go get a PCI ethernet card. He couldnt advise of any brand or type, so I am winging it. (I am like a pair of brown shoes in a tuxedo shop with computers)
    I have tried two boards and I cannot get them to be recognized.

    Any suggestions would be most appreciated...thanks, Jon
