What is a Base-T ethernet adaptor

Is a base-t ethernet adaptor just anything,
My network needs a base-t ethernet adaptor and xp pro, is any ethernet card base-t?
The computer i am looking at is a dell 8600 but the site mentions nothing about a base-t connector, if it is not compatible then is an external module possible?

I've just tried a search for Base-T ethernet, and found that it is an ethernet standard based on twisted pair cable click here

I'm not sure if this will work, but have a look at stepvoice click here it's free, so nothing lost if it doesn't.

Oops, wrong posting, sorry.

Any 10/100 NIC card with RJ45 connector will do.

NIC = Network Interface Card, but having looked up the spec on the Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop, it does refer to an integrated ethernet NIC so you shouldn't need any additional hardware. I don't know where it is, but just look for the RJ45 input click here it looks like a chunky phone socket.
