The Broadcom 5704C is an Ethernet controller that is basically responsible for letting your computer connect to a Local Area network (LAN) through an Ethernet port. It allows different computers connected to the same network to communicate with each other using routable protocols such as IP. These controllers used to be expansion cards that you can plug in, but are now usually built into the motherboard. Newer server motherboards even have dual controllers built-in, just like the 5704C.
