A network card is designed to connect a laptop, PC, workstation or server to a network, enabling communication with other internal users via network switches or access points; and the outside world via a router.
The speed of any network connection will depend on the protocol and standard used - for wired connections Ethernet or InfiniBand and for wireless either 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6 / Wi-Fi 6E), 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) or 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4).

RJ45 Network Cards

A network card is designed to connect a laptop, PC, workstation or server to a network, enabling communication with other internal users via network switches or access points; and the outside world via a router.

These cards are designed for an internal PCIe slot of a system, feature RJ45 ports and will provide wired connectivity based on Ethernet at speeds up to 10Gb/s.

SFP+ and SFP28 Network Cards

A network card is designed to connect a laptop, PC, workstation or server to a network, enabling communication with other internal users via network switches or access points; and the outside world via a router.

These cards are designed for an internal PCIe slot of a system, feature small form factor pluggable (SFP) ports and will provide wired connectivity based on Ethernet at speeds up to 100Gb/s.

Wireless Adapters - USB

A broadband connection into the home is now almost a given’s more devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, smart TVs, heating, lighting and security devices are increasing able to take advantage of an Internet connection for online gaming, remote operation or monitoring. A broadband router with increasingly powerful wireless capabilities is key to home and smart home connectivity.

These devices are for converting PCs or workstations to wireless connectivity via a USB port, as this is rarely standard on desktop computers where wired Ethernet network connectivity is the norm. The wireless speed of any adapter will vary depending on the wireless standard it is based on - either 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6 / Wi-Fi 6E), 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) or 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4).

Access Points, Bridges

Wireless access points (WAPs) are standalone devices designed to be connected to a wired router or plug socket in the case of HomePlug WAPs, to provide wireless access for portable devices such as laptops and smart phones. In the home access points are usually built in a broadband router, however in business separate access points are common as they offer flexibility of placement (often featuring PoE technology) and better coverage when multiple units are deployed.

These access points’ range and speeds will vary depending on the wireless standard they are based on - either 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6 / Wi-Fi 6E), 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) or 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4).

Print Servers

A print server is a dedicated device that allows one of more printers to connect to a LAN (local area network). The connection for the network is usually via an RJ45 port or secure WiFi. The connection for the printers is usually either parallel or a USB connector or even both. Check the specification of individual product to confirm the connectivity on both the network and printer side.
