Since that machine is a tower, the ethernet chip could possibly be on 
the motherboard, but it may also be a card that you can remove and 
replace with another. Ethernet cards that plug into PCI or similar 
internal slots are not very expensive usually. If you do have a card and 
not something onboard, I would recommend replacing it. Broadcom hardware 
does tend to be a bit of a pita on some Linux distributions. Wifi is the 
worst, but ethernet can be problematic as well.
