A cold what, graham√?? ;-)

Yes and Ethernet card, as USB is resource hungry, NTL say "UP TO 80% of resources used with USB"

Fitting a card is really easy.
If you need any tips search for "network cards"+"install" in the forum search box.

Good luck.

Server Edition might be but i assume 2020 is running NT Workstation, which is a desktop OS rather than a Server OS.

Since Windows NT doesnt support USB I think you will need to go for ethernet.
