Hi everyone,

After installing Windows Server 2012 on Windows 8 computer, I faced Internet connection issue. I decided to buy a new network card for server 2012, but I have no idea about it.

How can I know the best network card for the PC?
What kind of network card should I buy?
what about the compatibility?
What other things should I consider when I buy the network card for server 2012?

I am new in networking field and I am trying to search and buy a network card for the first time.

Thanks!

As long as you have a PCIe Slot on your motherboard this should do the trick:

ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express 300/300Mbps Transfer/Receive Rate 64-bit WEP, 128-bit WEP, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK, WPS support - Newegg.com

Hi you get the support cd and warranty card in the box and you can always contact Asus via the support web site PCE-N15 - Networking - ASUS it is wireless so there is little need for a cable but a RJ45 cat 5e or cat 6 cable are the more usual now

I have a question! when I checked the specification of the network card in the link that you posted, I saw the operation system for 7, XP, Vista. Is that mean I can buy it for windows Server 2012?

Oh Ok.

Which one should I look for in this website Network Connectivity — Is my Intel® Ethernet Adapter supported in Microsoft Windows Server 2012*?
There is desktop adapter, server adapter and management adapter etc. How can I decide which one?

Many Thanks!
