    Well since there is no networking area I suppose this goes here, anyways on this cool Chinese website (they have some really cool stuff) I found this:

    Its a PCIe 1x slot Gigabit network card for less than $10. If you need an upgrade well, here you are. (Only thing, dont expect it in a week it will take ~3 days to process and ~2 weeks to arrive)

    I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole... realtek NIC's have a habit of failing... Just ask me or Rob and we can chew your ear off with the number of 'issues' that can arise from them.
