It's difficult without the ethernet connection, I would have to type it
manually. but in addition to eth0 or 1 and lo, I also have an pan0? I do
not show that on this "good" computer? I tried plugging in a PCI
ethernet card but the "probe" function in the network setup GUI doesn't
see it and if I try to connect it acts like the card is not there.
However I see a different mac address in the ifconfig pan0 which I
assume is the address of that second card. I think I made all the
required entries network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 ...
Today has been nothing but aggravation, unsolved problems, the kids
internet, the JD lawn mower, aargh! I'm baking some bread, hope that works.

Yes,That's about what I saw here.
