Ethernet cards are very easy to install, and cheap to buy. I'd try any local computer store, you can pick one up for about $10.

Yeah, you can get one for $10, or more. I would say sppend a little more and notget the generic one, get a 3com or something. Try Bestbuy or Compusa.

Oh, and they are very easy to install. You open your computer, plug it into a pci slot, close your computer, start it up and Windows should pick it up. Just follow instructions and BAM! You got it. Very easy.
