Solved

Does my motherboard come with a wireless network adapter or whatever you need to connect to the internet?

I don't even know if I actually need it. Like will I be able to connect to the enter when I build the computer, or will I have to buy one?

    If you look under "Details" for that board....do you see anything about WiFi? How much research do you expect other people to do for you?
  2. Hmm, nope it doesn't have WiFi.

    I am assuming you can't use wired LAN?

    Look again.
  4. If anyone would care to pull it up and look at the specs, yes it has Wifi built in (through N 300mbs) and it works fine w/ the mobo, have worked on a couple of these

    Obviously I didn't know, and as you can see I'm not asking about anything other than the motherboard.

    From your link, the answer is/was right there under Details.
  7. Bumping this old thread with the same question. I have an ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3
    that I can't get connected to the internet through the motherboard ethernet input.

    The motherboards LAN Specifications read Realtek®, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s). Now do I just need the right drivers? Because I've tried a few no no avail. I wouldn't think i new hardware for ethernet when it's already mentioned in the specs.


    http://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/M5A78LMUSB3/overview/ That's my board, if you could point me to ethernet drivers I'd be grateful.

    Select your OS then download the latest LAN driver

    Kind sir, could you please do mine too? I have this mobo http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5481#ov and I can't connect to wi fi. Is it that my mobo doesn't have a wireless networking card? Thank you so much.
  10. You'll need a Wifi card or USB wifi adapter, it doesmn't come built in

    Thank you so much. I just bought a new PC and couldn't figure out why I couldn't connect to the wi fi. Which one should I get, a wi fi card or the usb thing?
  12. I prefer the USB adapter look for a min of 300 (N type)

    http://www.ryanscomputers.com/D-Link-DWA-1-923 is this one good?

    http://www.ryanscomputers.com/TP-Link-Arch-6668 < there's also this one which is more expensive. Will it give me faster wi fi? My PC is really close to the router.
  14. That'll work ;)
