Too Many Network Connectors?

Alright, here's the deal. I built this system a while back after my old Optiplex GX-260 died. It's a good system, but I decided I was missing some of my old bookmarks.

I was running Ubuntu on that system, so I brought the drive over after I installed Ext2IFS to read the partition. I was having issues getting the drive to read, so I simply returned the hardware back to its original configuration, and rebooted.

Somehow, I ended up with the following.


I have a wireless PCI card in the system that is no longer functioning (thank the stars that the onboard wasn't compromised), and everything else seems to be in working order... except for a docking station that doesn't exist, twenty-six new network connectors, and a couple other devices I don't quite recall putting in the box.

A rollback has not worked, nor has actively seeking the drivers.

Any input would be appreciated.

If the option is there did you try to go into your BIOS and disable any extra Network Cards that you are not using.
