Ethernet Connections??

  SAH 21:03 07 Aug 2005


This might sound a stupid question, but I've got an Evesham Evolution PC that I bought back in November 2002, but I'm not sure if I've got an Ethernet connection. According to the manual this PC has 2 Modem Line Jacks and 1 Firewire, are either of these Ethernet connections?

If you need one - you should ask for a LAN card - simple to plug in and very inexpensive - available in almost every computer shop.

Thanks DieSse and stalion. Does the LAN card just plug into a PCI slot? Failing that I've heard you can but a lead that plugs into your USB socket that has an Ethernet connection at the other end, not sure where to get one from though.

Yes - you'll get one at any computer shop - lower cost than a USB adapter one - and easier to set up usually. Prolly cost a tenner or so.
