    Cool Onboard LAN port dead after power surge

    I have a GA-890GPA-UD3H motherboard and last night a power surge fried my dsl modem, power adapter ( was plugged in

    a surge protector ) and onboard LAN port. Now, I have been thinking about getting a nice dualband gigabit wi-fi router like a nighthawk or archer c7 or linksys 1200ae something along those lines.. My question is, do I have to buy a "gigabit" port ethernet card in order to use that type of router? Because a basic ethernet card is like 10 bucks but the gigabit ones seem to be well over 100

    What is your internet provider speed? (the speed you pay for). Is the router you want will be part of a Lan? If yes a 100 Mbps one or a 1000 Mbps?

    From TP-Link: "TP-LINK Archer C7 can provide support up to 450 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. It can also support 1,300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band."

    1000 Mbps = 1 Gbps (gigabit)

    1 Gbps card is pretty the standard now.
    Not mentioning that the new kid is near (so they say).
    802.11ax with a theoretical speed at 3.5 Gbps per stream I think
