    I have a company PC that is behaving very strangely. It is XP-SP2.

    When I am not connected to the internet via an ethernet cable,
    IPCONFIG does not show my "Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection
    connection".

    I need the ethernet card's physical address to run software. The
    license is tied to the physical address of the ethernet card.

    I have heard of this problem in LINUX but not with windows.

    Is there anyway to "turn on" the ethernet card so that it shows up in
    IPCONFIG?

    thanks!
