You could skip the router and plug the ethernet jack on the computer directly into a cable/DSL modem. But putting the router in between is usually a better plan.

Either a plug in PCI card or a USB adapter

What about my Gigabyte GA-H97-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard, Does it come with any of that included?

Can anyone recommend me a good wireless card if I need one?



M.2 onboard connector (up to 10gb/s) so It is fine right?

A regular CAT5 or CAT6 network cable. Either one will work.
