A ZERO point question?

Here's the ZERO-point answer: install a physical network card.

Hint: change this to a '50' point ("easy") question, and you'll get better comments.

PRAKA_V, why did you plagiarize a previous comment,
and claim it to be an "answer" ?

That was a very inappropriate thing to do.

This question is being removed for lack of communication from the Questioner, or Expert involvement.  There seems to no definitive answer on this thread.

I shall accept my own comment, as this question seems to have merit, and will be moved to PAQ.

The points will be returned.

Thank you
