2.- I do not know if this gives you the NIC data, In the Host console I did:ifconfig

3.- Error in my last update, copied from synaptic:
"W: Failed to fetch http://distro.ibiblio.org/pclinuxos/pclinuxos/apt/pclinuxos/2010/RPMS.updates/x11-driver-input-wacom-0.14.0-1pclos2012.i586.rpm
Could not connect to distro.ibiblio.org:80 (18.104.22.168). - connect (113 No route to host)"
3.1 Very often the browser shows this error:
"Server not found

ww.example.com instead of www.example.com

a.- When I was in the USA I had a wireless connection via a Netgear USB adapter, at that time internet worked fine, but I had little time to test and no RJ-45 LAN was available. I returned to my country since a week, I do not connect the Netgear wireless USB now that I use RJ45 LAN.
b.- I am a little confused because with Linux I have 3 boot options after I installed the kernel to detect more than 4GB of RAM:
Boot PCLinuxOS 2012
Boot PCLinuxOS 2012 (Safe mode)
Boot Microsoft Windows
Linux with kernel 22.214.171.124-pclos3.bfs
Linux with kernel 126.96.36.199-pclos3.pae.bfs
If I "Boot PCLinuxOS 2012" it do not work with the internet connection
If I "Linux with kernel 188.8.131.52-pclos3.pae.bfs" it randomly works with the internet connection
At boot it ask: 1 wireless, 2 default connection, I hit 2 or 1 same problem.
c.- If I check the SSD with the Intel SSD Tools via Windows 7, the SSD is 100% fine with 100% life.
Hope this information helps.
