Hello, your English is just fine. ESX and ESXi come with a limited number of network card drivers. You'll find a list of what ESXi 3.5 can recognize here - http://www.vm-help.com/esx/esx3i/Hardware_support.php.


Unfortunately there is no d-link driver for ESX/ESXi. Here are the options.
1) Add a compatible NIC. I usually recommend the Intel Pro 1000 GT as it is fairly cheap to buy and works well with ESXi 3.5 and 4.0.

2) Compile a driver. This is a more challenging option and you have to know something about compiling Linux drivers to do this. Now the kernel of ESX and ESXi is not Linux, but some of the drivers that come with ESX(i) are compiled for ESX(i) from Linux source. If you're familiar with that then you might be able to do that and we can provide some links to get you started. But there's no gaurantee that it'll work well, so adding a NIC can be the less painless option.
