I just found out that my onboard LAN doesn't work with Linux, so I'll have to buy a pci card. Any recommendations for for a cheap NIC card with Linux support?

just looked it up on newegg, and it looks like that is a router. Is was more looking for a pci card with a ethernet port (I already have a router).

Newegg
Do you think that any of those will be fine?

NIC cards are such a commodity today as long as the mfg says they support Linux then it will be fine. I like to stick to well known brands - Intel, SMC, DLink, Linksys, Netgear, etc., but I've had oddball brands and they've worked fine too.
