i'd say if the kernel didn't detect it, it wouldn't load it even if you did
enable it.

a watchdog card isn't a network card by the way, it's a totally different
hardware component. If you have it, you'd know it most likely.

Uhm what to do about this, i don't know honestly. You should be able to
pint the network card even if there's no cable or somebody else on the
other side of the cable. Perhaps it would do you good to go back to the
kernel config and scrutize it and recompile it just in case.
