Network Interface Card

Specs: Windows XP
I am installing a ZyXEL P-600 DSL modem to a Dell Dimension L1000R PC. I have been told I need a network interface card (NIC). I was under the impression an ethernet connection is not needed unless you were using a LAN. If I do need a NIC, what product do I need and where do I get a good, cheap one?

Yes you need an ethernet port in the PC for the modem to connect. If the system does not already have such a port then you can buy a 10/100 PCI network card for about $10
