When it doesn't work, what happens exactly? Do you get an error like "connection refused" or "network unreachable", or does it just try to connect forever?

Found a kind of a work-around. SuSE uses YaST (I am assuming you guys know what this is...lol), and when I go to configure the network card with this interface, I can use my cablemodem if, and only if, I delete the entry for the ASUSTek ethernet card (again, I don't use this....can't disable in bios).
Right after deleting it, the network only tries to use the USB NIC, and it works. For example, I JUST did that and am posting right now on my shiny new Linux screen.
If it is a problem with that interplay, it may be a moot point after all, because I am updating my motherboard this weekend anyway. However, it's another ASUS (P4P800) that will probably have a similar thing.
It seems that each time I boot Linux, it re-detects all my hardware regardless of the status I left it in when I last logged off. I wonder if there is a way to save the hardware configuration OPTIONS I have chosen, and have this set with each boot up....
