My Network Controller has gone bad and am having trouble making sure I get the right one.  The one in there now is Integrated, so need to find one that will install Internally...somehow?  Model Below:

I've tried, and found some that I think will work, but don't really know for sure.

 

Thanks, pcpunk

You need a PCI Express (PCIe) x1 network card.   That will connect to your motherboard.  Or you can go with USB Network Adapter, which ever you are more comfortable with.

Thanks Kliroy, I think I will go with this one from TP-Link as it has many reviews and ships from the US where I am, what do you think?  I see that it also has LED's on it, that's a good plus isn't it?

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704060&cm_re=pcie_network-_-33-704-060-_-Product

 

Is it any better to buy from "Sold and Shipped by: Newegg" or would a seller like the one below be good/better?

 

EDIT: Now I see the one below is Free Shipping, but not sure about Newegg Shipping.  I see the list of ways to ship but not sure if they will charge, I suppose I need to move to the checkout?

 

Here I see one from another shipping from US and has a decent rating from what I can see, not used to buying from newegg, but have a few times.
 

Does it make much difference which one I get? Not to worried about performance as this pc ain't got that to start with lol.  What Brands are the rest of these, just generic, like the one I posted just above this?

 

Also, on THIS PAGE it says "Data transfer speeds: up to 10/100 Mb/s", I'm guessing this means that any of these Adapters will be much faster than this pc can handle: 1000Mb/s?

 

Thanks, pcpunk!
