Ethernet port

I need an ethernet port to hook up for DSL.  Does my Dell Dimension L933r have such a port?

How do I do this?

Thanks.

Re: Ethernet port

bobmpc,

 

Your Dimension L933R most likely does not have an ethernet port.  To add an ethernet port, you will need to purchase a PCI network card and install it into one of the open PCI slots inside your computer.  A network card can be purchased from a local computer store or an online vendor such as zipzoomfly.com, newegg.com, tigerdirect.com or any of a number of others.  Here are several examples of compatible network cards which will work in your system:

Instructions for opening your computer case and installing the PCI card can be found at this link:
