I got my desktop just four months ago and i have a dsl connection on it...I am shopping around for a router right now mainly for its firewall...my question is do i need to buy a network card adapter I saw in diff. sites that the card is one of the must have accessories other than the ethernet cable. Do I really need a card for my comp? I have an inkling that I really don't 'coz I already have an ethernet port where my dsl modem is connected. Am I also right in assuming that the router would also connect to the same port that my modem is using right now I know this are simple but for a newbie like me it's a different thing. Thanks again.
