Perfect !
Now I see :
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8180L 802.11b 
MAC (rev 20)
        Subsystem: Netgear: Unknown device 4700
        Control: I/O- Mem- BusMaster- SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- 
Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
        Status: Cap+ 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- 
<TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
        Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 19
        Region 0: I/O ports at 4400 [disabled] [size=256]
        Region 1: Memory at 28800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] 
        Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
                Flags: PMEClk- DSI- D1+ D2+ AuxCurrent=0mA 
                Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=0 PME-

Now the driver.
Thanks Daniel.
