Default network interface point

Right, basically I need one of the above in order to install broadband, is there anyway you can get some sort of add on thing which would enable me to do this?

Cheers

I'm supposing that you're looking for a Network Interface Card NIC? Are you certain you do not have one? If you don't they are pretty cheap, can be had for under $20.00 USD. I'm guessing you're not from the states. If you're not comfortable installing a PCI NIC in your computer you can pick up something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833127147

Is it a laptop or desktop, most desktops have ethernet connector built into mobo, most laptops are sorted for this aswell now. If ya havent already got this connector built in then ya need a NIC. Not sure what ya already have for ya broadband, have ya already got a modem or ADSL router(access point) for this.

It is a desktop pc. It has a socket for (what I believe is) a line router cable with smaller RJ11 plugs.

There is no socket for an ethernet cable with larger RJ45 plugs - needed for broadband.

I already have dial up internet which is connected, i think, by one of those small RJ11 plugs.


The cable is needed to connect the pc to the modem router.
I have an ADSL.

Sorry if this doesnt make much sense but im not exactly an expert!

Thanks again!

p.s. could you tell me more about these NICs?

Right so ya just need a NIC a PCI one should be fine, but i cant confirm this coz i dont know what motherboard ya have. Something like mentioned above will do nicely if ya not happy about opening ya computer up. If ya dont mind opening it up and ya want something tucked away and a bit tidier then this will do the job
