    Not very knowledgable with computers, but I have a Dell Dimension L667r and need a 10Base-T Ethernet Network Interface Card in order to hook up my DSL. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. :wavey:

    For some reason I've always loved intel cards. I think because I've never had a *nix system NOT recognize one. hehe. Really any major companies Nic should work fine.

    honstly i dont have a favorite nic i have used many many brands. I have used the shittiest: net gear, d-link no name brands. I've used linksys, 3com, 3com gigabit etc. And i dont like one more than another, to me they all work just as well, and i have never had any problems with using any of them.

    D-Link == RealTek for the most part I think. I used RealTek drivers for my D-Link card.
