I am on ADSL always on. When I open network I can't find anything, also
when I check in system to see if my Ethernet card is working it is not even
shown, although it is all working and I am able to use the net. If I try
ipconfig, it shows all the information but I can't find it in windows so
that I can adjust the properties. I am using XP Pro. Can anyone help
please?

Why would you want to change properties if everything is working ??

You can find some of the settings by using Start ---> settings - network
connection and then right click on the connection icon.

Some of the settings can be found by using Start -->control panel --->System
Icon.
Then click on computer name

And the ones for the interface card itself by clicking on hardware -->
device manager and expanding network adapters.

That is my point, I have tried all that you have suggested and cannot find
an icon.

The icon is likely to say something like

Local area connection (and it might provide the interface card below)

This is my point, I know what the icon might say, but there is no icon,
neither is there an entry in system/hardware for my card, yet still it
works!

You sure it’s ethernet?

The "symptoms" you describe make me think that it’s a USB adapter,
with some kind of specilizsed software which removes the need for a
network interface compleatly.
