I am running Ubuntu 12.04 based distro (Elementary OS Stable) My motherboard is:

Asus p5kpl-am se

The Lan Card is: Intel PRO 1000/GT Desktop Adapter

I am trying to add an external lan Card so that I can connect on Lan and Internet both at the same time. After connecting the Lan Card in PCI slot I do not find the card in the system.

The output of the ifconfig -a command is as below:

root@host:/home/user# ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:e6:ba:b8:7a:be
inet addr:192.168.1.10 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::92e6:baff:feb8:7abe/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:38497 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:35509 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:33402284 (33.4 MB) TX bytes:20030855 (20.0 MB) lo Link encap:Local Loopback

Then I ran lspci command and the output is as below:

have you verified the card actually works? – Ramhound Aug 27 '13 at 16:17
    
Ramhound thank you for your quick response. I have found that the card is fine but the bios was having some thing weird. I reset all to default in Bios and the card is appearing in ifconfig command. – yurmuki Aug 27 '13 at 17:03
