    Hi brooky

    Not to slur Macs, but their hardware requirements and overall design are more stringent than PCs, meaning the odd hardward upgrade is often out of the question. As such, as Bob007 rightly says, you'll probably have to get it sorted out via Apple if you're absolutely sure the network card is gone (the Apple support people should guide you through some simple steps just to check if its something else, like the OS, for example).

    I know of someone, not personally, who sent off their PowerBook to have a graphics card repaired. Two months later and they got it back only to find they had the same problem. It turns out the issue label had been read incorrectly and the technicians had replaced a perfectly good screen with another one and left the faulty card. hehe :) Here's hoping your experience is a tad better (I'm sure it will be :))

    Kind Regards
