      I've just had a look at the back of my PC and it has a 10/100 lAN socket, can this be used to connect the router to?

      Thanks for reply NewreadeR, I'm not to sure if it would work, I've had a look at the how to install pci card page and the back of the pictured PC looks like mine.

      The LAN socket is above the yellow and blue audio sockets
