I tried this it still doesn't work right when I ping I lose over
half of the packets and it blinks constantly. The nic is part of the
motherboard along with a wireless conection of some sort. 
It does the same thing on the windows side compaq says it is suppose to 
blink on and off constantly! Should I try using a real nic card.
If so any suggestions on what to use?
