  1. All motherboards have Ethernet ports and pretty much any wifi card will do as long as you have the right expansion slot.
  2. Yeah, all you do is plug the Ethernet cable into the motherboard. You'd be very, VERY hard-pressed to find a motherboard that doesn't have at least one Ethernet controller of decent quality. Some motherboards even have on-board wifi.

    The one you have built in has a good ethernet controller, but I can't help you with a wifi card - I just use my onboard. What you're looking for is "N"-band wifi.
