Default Lan

ok my motherboard has a Realtek 8111C on it.
What does that even mean because I'm not able to connect to the internet, only my local area.
Does this mean I have to buy a network card to access the internet?
I'm only asking because my last computer did not require one..

I have a linksys HUB I believe.
The drivers that came with my board are strange, I'm going to try some off the internet later today when I get home.
I'll be sure to update.
