Hello Thomas,

This is what I have done:

* Search for a Debian package with newst kernel for Wheezy

This is what I would do:

* On a (friends) computers with access to Internet

* Go to https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/amd64/linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64/download

* Download the linux dot deb

* Put it on a USB storage device

* Take the USB storage device to the computer with the "new" NIC

* Open a "terminal", so have the CLI, Command Line Interface

* Be come "root", examples given,  `sudo -i`,  `su -`

* change directory to where the  linux dot deb is

* execute the command  `dpkg -i linux*.deb`

* see how the new kernel gets installed

* reboot the computer

* the bootloader will shortly show a menu which kernel to use.
  (most likely became the new kernel the default)

* Report the milage at debian-boot mailinglist
