is my PC compatible with this NIC?

FA311 10/100 low profile PCI network interface card. PC is dell dimension 2300 currently has wireless network card but i moved out and now i just have this super crappy isp provided modem and no ethernet port for the cable. Would it be best to buy a wireless router as a go between because i have the antenae(spl?) and i only have one phone jack which is on the other side of the house. or will this NIC solve my problems and will it replace the wireless nic that is in there now. Thanks for any help in advance.

I will assume that your Dell has a spare PCI slot; in which case, your chosen card will fit. It's reasonably priced as well.
Ethernet is preferable to wireless.

excellent thank you very much. I found dells web help very unhelpful without my service tag number which is about 20 minutes away. Once again Thank you very much.
