That's an easy one!

Each Network Interface Card (NIC) has its own machine level address, called a MAC address which is assigned and programmed into it during manufacture. This is different from the IP address, which can be changed.

A NIC is a special hardware card that handles the sending and receiving data computer network.

The address that identifies a NIC is called the Media Access Control (MAC) address. A MAC address identifies a specific physical device and never changes for the life of the NIC. Two NICs never have the same MAC address (unless some manufacturer screws up royally [which has happened]). Because your NIC's MAC address is permanent, it's often referred to as the "real," or physical, address of a computer.

Two get two cards working just install them and their drivers. If they are both identical, they can use the same driver set.

NO, its not possible to have same MAC addresses for two different network cards. because MAC address is a unique part of the recognition of the network card and it is also called as PHYSICAL address of your PC. There is possibility of 2 network cards with same MAC address by 3rd party MAC spoofing techniques.........

HP Jetdirect cards allow a printer to be connected directly to a Local Area Network (LAN), so that printer can be accessed by any computer on the same network.

Yes, you can but you might have a problem when you are using two network cards in same time if they are both connected to internet, and sometimes when only one connected to internet and another one just to a local network.

In relation to mobile phones - it means the handset is no longer tied to the original network it was sold to. When you buy a brand-new mobile, almost always it's 'locked' to a specific network - meaning it will only accept SIM cards from the samenetwork. However - it's possible to unlock it - so it will accept SIM cards from any network - not just the original one it was locked to.

Generally, if we are speaking of the same kind of "network cable" and there is not a component to the question which I am misunderstanding, an adapter is not necessary to simply plug a computer into a network. There is typically a dedicated port for this on the computer itself.

A computer network is a group of computers that share the same internet connection. A network can also be set up with computers that share a printer or other devices.

The use of a network cable for a computer is to provide a number of computer the same function. This provide the ability to connect with many printers and fax machines.

If I am reading your question correctly, I would imagine it is because the computer is not on the same network... **The computer has an invalid default gateway address**

It would be under "Network Devices" that is if the computer you are checking from is connected to the same network.Or the Network Address!!

One computer on a network will drop another if both computers are using the same IP Address. This can be solved by assigning both computers automatic IP address, and Windows will automatically deal with the network issue.

A network printer is a USB printer connected to the network, and any computer connected to the same network can see and send data to the network printer. Using a single network printer means that each computer doesn't need to have their own printer.
