Now I have installed the kernel via hyperair's ppa into an already
installed system Lubuntu 13.10 system (in a USB 3 pendrive).

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hyperair/staging

It runs, but the wired network won't connect in my new Toshiba with an
i5 processor:

linux-image- works like it should
linux-image- works but has no wired network

I can check in another computer, for example the Thinkpad with Pentium M
... It works, including the network :-)

I wonder why the wired network won't work with this non-pae kernel in
the modern computer (the Toshiba was bought in April 2013).

It is the same problem in a Toshiba from 2010 with a Realtek ethernet
card (that has 'always' worked with various linux versions). But the
kernel works in a computer with an ASUS M2N-VM DVI mobo and a built-in
nvidia ethernet chip from 2008. Maybe there is a problem with the driver
for some Realtek chips/cards.

Best regards
