A network adapter is a piece of hardware that acts as the interface for a computer to a network. This way, computers can communicate across a network. Businesses can cut operation costs with networking adapters. Instead of purchasing equipment for each employee, business owners can buy a single piece of business equipment to be shared like desktop printers. A computer network adapter also makes it easy for IT personnel and computer owners to troubleshoot problems. These adapters have indicator lights built in to let you know if there is a communication problem.
At PC Connection, you will find a wide selection of top-quality networking adapters from companies like Intel, HP, IBM, Transition Networks, and Cisco. Intel’s networking adapters maximize performance and increase end-user productivity. Auto-negotiation is used for the highest network speeds, and full bandwidth capacity is maintained. HP’s adapters are designed to help achieve performance scalability for consolidated server environments and have network adapter models with teaming drivers for all major operating systems. With Cisco’s adapters, you can mix and match for connections to Cisco 1800, 2800, and 3800 integrated service routers.
If your business needs a network adapter, you can browse both wired and wireless models. A wireless computer network adapter looks similar to a thumb drive. Once it is plugged in, it will scan for local broadcasts and display the local networks for the user. After you have accessed a network, the device will automatically log you into the network the next time you boot. These devices are popular for mobile computers as they do not require an Ethernet cable.
