Going to get DSL. Have a question.

by CardsFan29 / December 10, 2007 4:48 AM PST


I'm going to get DSL in the near future. I know that I will need to purchase the DSL modem from the company where I'll be getting my service. Would I also need to purchase an ethernet card for my computer as well?

"I know" = I'd check that out.

Here it's rented out and it's not a bad deal. You get a wifi dsl modem router that is supported by them and it works.

As to the ethernet card, they sell them or you buy one. It's cheap at at under 9 bucks.

Thanks for the information! It's good to hear that the ethernet card is a pretty cheap thing to get.
