Good evening and welcome to the forum. I hope we can help you.

You should try and name the title some about what the problem is because it not only helps people look through the threads, but also in future searches, that's the advert over, now to your problem.

You may already have a network adaptor installed as an integral part of the motherboard, have a look at the back and see if there is a socket which looks like a telephone socket but bigger. If you can't see it it might not be installed, in which case you need to buy one, they cost anywhere between £5 and £15 you can get one from you local PC World, they maybe called a Network Interface Controller or NIC card and this fits into one of the spare PCI slots inside the computer.

Then all you need is the network cable to connect the computer to the NIC card, again buy from PC world, not the cheapest place for these items, but convenient.

Hope this helps?

Just to let you know...

Please avoid posting duplicate threads about the same subject; you have two threads in networking about this subject.

Addendum to octal's advice; make sure that it you purchase an Ethernet adapter, not a wireless adapter, otherwise you will have no means to access the router's interface and configure it.
