I'm maybe wrong but it sounds weird to me...."There were" is plural
and "ethernet card" is singular.

that was a spelling error :-)

In other places in D-I, we have "No Ethernet card was detected"

> + it is necessary to have at least on ethernet card.

same as here: s/on/one/

I'm not fond of possessive here. I'd prefer something like:

"In order to onfigure PPPoE on the system, at least one Ethernet card
is needed"

BTW, we lack consistency about the writing of "Ethernet/ethernet" in
D-I. I think that "Ethernet" is better, given that this is a proper
noun.....OK, you mentioned this later anyway...:)

I changed to Ethernet.

If the system has an Ethernet card, it probably failed to be detected.

The configuration of PPPoE will be aborted.

Sounds better.
