Welcome aboard sawm666 and don't worry about your English, it's fine.;) Hmm, what does device manager say, assuming it's running XP. What mobo do you have? Usually one installs chipset drivers first and then the Ethernet one.

Yes on a PCI Ethernet card, they are cheap and work well with no need to install drivers, you'll just have to check your network places and disable the motherboard Ethernet. This is actually what I had to do with my 4 year old ASUS nForce A8N-E mobo.

There are fundamentally two possible causes for your issue :

1) Onboard ethernet card is broken, so installing a PCI ethernet card should fix it, but you should be aware that your motherboard is starting to fail and act accordingly

2) Onboard networking controller is broken, in which case your motherboard is basically hosed

In both cases, the end result is that you are heading towards new motherboard time :( ... although you may be able to temporarily delay this by using a PCI ethernet card as suggested ...
