i just had a look on the net and found this on the net i am not sure about
ubuntu but this card seems to work on linux well a different distro
this is what it said about your nic card
Broadcom NetLink BCM5789 Gigabit Ethernet - Use Tigon3 tg3 module.
it won't make difference if you switch to a 10/100 i am running it on that
and a friend of mine is running a gigabit ethernet card and he can't tell
the differance between the speed wise so if a 10/100 works i'd say use
