I bought a used computer for my G/F which does not have an ethernet port. It has a 56K modem installed as well as a wireless NIC card. I have a DSL modem, ethernet cable, and DSL filter and that's about it.
Can I get away with a simple Ethernet/USB adapter or am I being overly optimistic? I've been googling this all morning and it seems like I might be able to do this. The computer is not that old and is running XP home.
I'm not much of a hardware guy and feel like I'm in over my head here. Any help, tips, advice would be greatly appreciated.
