Hello Kit,

ISA devices are 8 or 16-bit, PCI devices are 8, 16, or 32-bit (mostly
32-bit since that was the main point of going to PCI). That in itself
shouldn't be a problem.

The fact that you can see the home network proves beyond question that the
NIC is functioning correctly. The problem of not being able to connect to
the Internet from that machine has to be somewhere else. Is this machine
the gateway machine, or do you have a router?
