Note that it is a PCI-e device and it's a gigabit NIC. A typical NIC is only 100MB at max speed, a gigabit NIC is faster when used with corresponding equipment.

Check the specs of your system...see if such device is listed in the specs. If it is...and it disappeared...my interpretation would be that it no longer functions properly.

What kind of PC is this? Custom? I'd try to goto the manufacturers website and download the latest driver.

If you don't use it...ignore it.

I have a dialup modem on this system, which I don't use because I have cable broadband. I disable it in the BIOS because it serves me no purpose, I could just easily allow it to remain enabled in the BIOS...and disable it in Device Manager...or just ignore it.

Do you use it?

How many adapters/NICs/LANs are reflected on your system in Device Manager?

There are 11 adapters displayed (9 hidden+2 more) in my device manager.I use my netbook only with wireless(wi fi) connection.So i think i will ignore it cause it seems nothing important...

Thanks one more time :thumbsup:

Ps:if you need any more information just ask :flowers:
