this is true.

my bad, failed to mention that when i was able to see other wifi signals,
it was via the modem/router/wifi. installed wifi card to see if it would
catch any wifi signals.

as for what box is seeing;

]$ pwd

]$ grep Ethe dmesg
eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xd000, IRQ 5, 00:07:95:18:2b:bb
8139cp: 10/100 PCI Ethernet driver v1.3 (Mar 22, 2004)
8139too Fast Ethernet driver 0.9.28

]$ grep eth dmesg
eth0: SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet at 0xd000, IRQ 5, 00:07:95:18:2b:bb
eth1: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xf957cf00, 00:00:b4:be:4a:14, IRQ 5

]$ lspci|grep Eth
00:03.0 Ethernet controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] \
         SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet (rev 90)
00:08.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. \
         RTL-8100/8101L/8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (rev 10)

         Wireless Network Adapter [AR5005G(S) 802.11bg] (rev 01)

so, card is seen and readable. maybe needs drivers?

also, not mentioned before;

  eth0 = xfinity modem
  eth1 = 2Wire 2701HG-B
