Wher and what ethernet card do I buy?

\015 I have a Gateway Performance 800 and I would like to try to install an internet card so I can get high speed. I just don't know which one to buy.\015\012I don't know much about this stuff. If someone could tell me where and which card to buy I would appreciate it.\015\012Thank you\015\012Jean\015

Answers :

I trierd to lok up you computer at the Gateway website but lacked the model number in order to see it it had an ethernet car alread installed on the mother board. If you done;l have one then you purchase any  current brand PCI  Gb ether net card. After that is installed, then contact either the phone company or the cable company for the modem and subscription service they will provide.\015\012If you have it on you computer already,it wil be on the back a little bigger hole than you present phone cord goes into. Additionally if it is there,and you can see from the manual available from the website for your model,the it will have to be turned on in the BIOS, whos instruction you wil also find in the manual. I hope I helped and not caused you additional confusion.
