Consumer grade compatible NIC needed
Sorry for not doing my research but I'm kinda in a bind
I've had a router fail and have to make an emergency box out of an i3 based pc with PCI-e slots
I'm driving from bfe to Lexington Ky, if anyone has good experience with a NIC found at like a best buy or similar please let m know.

intel pro 1000 ct pcie or any intel pcie adapter would going
But as I see it right BestBuy has only 5 NICs to sell by their own, the rest are from resellers!

Well that was a fun day. Responses I got:
Best Buy: "we have them on the website"
Small shop #1: "what do you mean? Like hard line?"
Small shop #2: "we carry intellinet"
The intellinet actually worked, turns out it was a Realtek rtl8618b which wasn't recognized by BIOS until I set PCI-E to gen 1. Then I had to turn off the cards BIOS boot override
Config restored reinstalling packages now. I hope someone down here buys me a beer :P
Shopping for a new box now
