I have a BT home hub, it has 2 x Ethernet ports, can you not connect your PC via this, with a network cable ? no drivers needed !

It is cheap and easy to fit a PCI ethernet card ...

ok maybe best to check this first, goto >> control panel >> system >> device manager. Any network card should be listed under Network adaptors. You will have to click the + sign to get the details, providing there is one present.

I should have said that too. All sorted for less then £12. :)

What is the make and model of your PC ?

And the link that Technotiger sent would also include the cable for less than £12.
