wow you need help
the first two are usb 2.0 pci cards

the other ones on the list vary from sound cards to other stuff
i really dont know what you mean by a faster internet connection
for that you need a new isp

Faster internet connection huh.. Well those arent gonna help you out at all with your internet connection. What do you use? Dial up, DSL or Cable? Cable is by far the fastest internet connection and depending on your Mobo you either have a built in ethernet connection or you dont. If you are using dial up, you can upgrade you card if it is needed, just depends on what you have now. Pretty much, we cant help you if you dont tell us what you have now and what your using.
