I have a MSI H61M-P20(G3).It has only 2 PCI-E Slots out of which I presently use one.I need both Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi.Is there any PCI-E card that offers both.My Budget is $20.

That board has onboard gigabit ethernet.

Why do you need two ethernet ports, plus WiFi?

It does not have onboard Gigabit Ethernet.And I require WiFi as it is difficult to always use the LAN cable.

Get USB Wireless dongle, and PCIx network card. Or get cheap router which can act as WAP, connect your "slow" motherboard Ethernet to WAP, and use PCIx wired ethernet.

Good point. It's been ages since I've seen anyone use 100Mb/s ethernet on a desktop board... damn market segmentation.

Yeah, a USB wireless dongle is the way to go.
