    If you do a Google search, you will find hundreds of results.

    Ethernet cards aren`t normally expensive anyway.

    I have moved your thread to a more appropriate forum.

    Regards Howard :)

    I'm sorry, Akaivan, but i could buy one at a store for much less.
    What I am trying to find, is one that cost around 1-5 dollars.
    Know any stores that have that kind of card?

    Thanks Anyways.

    its alright i thought i could atleast try, anything from the internet will probly be 3-8$ cash shipping.. Best to go to some local electronics store. But either way still may be around 10$> Hope that helps.

    Best buy does have some that cost a lot.
    Circuit city too.
    Are there special ethernet cards for different routers, or do all ethernet cards connect to any router?

    Any modern 10/100/1000 card will work with any modern router. Back in the day old network cards had a coax like interface, but you'd have to specifically go looking for one to get one like that now (thats the only ones that won't work with modern routers).

    The problem with buying at Staples/Best Buy/Circuit City/Office Max/Wal Mart/ect is that they charge you $20+. Your best bet is some little local computer shop, or to buy off a friend that has a spare.

    You can find hundreds of dirt cheap ethernet cards on ebay for less than $15. Heck, I sold one for about $10 about a year ago.
