I have a wireless router that connects with an ethernet cable. My PC does not have an ethernet connection. I was told by my DSL provider that I need a "Realtek Family Fast Ethernet Adapter" in order to make this work. Any help on finding this and installing it?

A few things to try. Plug the cable into a different port on the router to rule out a bad port on router. Try a different ethernet cable (they do go bad). If this is an older router it may not be able to do logic swap on the pins and you would need to use a cross-over cable and not a straight through. Also check in device manager and make sure the computer is not allowed to disable the lan adapter in power saving mode. Also if your really want you can test your ethernet port by buying or making your own loopback plug. Look up ethernet stander T568A. You basically would buy a empty ethernet jack and run a short wire from pin 1 to pin 3 and a wire from pin 2 to pin 6. This will simulate sending data to another device (the other device will simply be the receiving pins on your own ethernet jack.
