Hey guys,

I put together my very first PC yesterday, and it runs no problems at all! However, when I tried connecting to my router I realised didn't have any type of hardware needed to even make the connection. So now I need to drive down to CPL again (Melbourne, Australia) to pick an internal or USB adapter (definately internal). My question is: which card from - http://www.cplonline.com.au/networking.html - is good? I'll only buy an internal card which is $30 or under, but I have no knowledge whatsoever on networking cards, what's the difference and which one should I get?

Thanks guys!!

Maybe your motherboard has networking already, lots of them do. What kind is it?

Onboard LAN is wired though, isn't it?

This desktop is in a separate room from the router :/
