Network adapters come in different types. Today, they almost don't need to buy yourself, as motherboard manufacturers are incorporating these devices to reduce the cost of the computer and usability in General. Network adapter can connect to a computer via a USB connector or by connecting to the motherboard. The purchase of these devices, mostly connected with the failure of the previous one.
As you know, there are two types of network is: wireless network and wired. Network adapters can be used for both types of networks. It should be noted that the varieties of network adapters for wireless networks, there is much more, as this kind of network today are in great demand and popularity. With their help, the user can connect the computer to any available wireless network and use the Internet.
Why the need for the network adapter?
Most modern computers and notebooks have an integrated network Wi-Fi adapter or network card. It is possible that this card is out of order and no longer functioning properly or it just doesn't work. This is possible if standards networking and change to the new faster connection Protocol. Of course, the old cards can no longer serve the new Protocol, and hence can't work with routers that support the new standard. Replace this card on a new network adapter will allow to solve an urgent problem.
By itself, the network adapter and the driver that comes with it perform two functions, it: the transmission and reception of the frame. The result is a sequence of actions that perform a driver and a network adapter, the user gets access to the network and can easily work on the Internet. Without a network adapter or network card user will not be able to go online, you will not be able with the cable to connect to it, and will not seek to use any wireless networks. In the end, the user loses very much.
The current generation of network adapters that allows you to develop speed on the Internet up to GB/sec, and they have a number of specific (high-level) functions, which are sometimes, the user may not even know. For example, the kit can include: support remote monitoring, remote control functions and much more.
Advice 2: Why you need a motherboard
The parent (system) Board is the main element of the modern personal computer. The parent Board is the link between all the other devices that are part PC.
The main purpose of the motherboard is working together, the CPU, RAM, hard drive, video card and other devices. It is through the individual sectors of the motherboard exchange information all the above devices. From the motherboard depends on the choice of other elements of the personal computer.Modern motherboard itself consists of a multilayer plate, groups of transistors and capacitors, the microcontroller and slots for connecting RAM, graphics card, processor and other devices. Chipset (microcontroller) combines the two "bridge", between which passes on the internal bus. The Northern bridge is required to enable communication between the processor, graphics card and feemi RAM. The South bridge combines an external device, PCI slots and hard drive. Motherboards differ in form factor. This facilitates the creation of new models of motherboards. Form factor includes the following features: the presence or absence of certain slots, the location of these slots, the options for fixing the Board to the system unit, the sizes of a payment and types of connectors used to connect power supply. It is noteworthy that the producers tend not to deviate from the conventional types of motherboards to ensure their products widely.It is worth noting that from the motherboard depends on the choice of the majority of the rest of the equipment. Video card and motherboard RAM have different connectors to the motherboard. The presence of a certain socket to install the CPU makes it impossible to add CPU types. Thus, the parent fee is not only a link between the PC elements, but also prevents the possibility of simultaneous connection of incompatible equipment.
