These are his words: An ethernet port doesn´t know it´s connected to the internet, your OS does. Keyloggers run through your OS. Plus, the scheme described would be rendered useless if you got a wireless card, then it would assume you never connected to the internet.

If I remember right there is a small circuit behind the keyboard connecter. It´s the keyboard buffer that interprets all the keystrokes and can be found on any laptop, even ones built before Al Gore invented your internets. It´s not connected to the ethernet port though, but then neither would a keylogger.
