Acer Laptop Network Interface Card (NIC)

Acer Laptop Network Interface Card is a circuit board or card that is installed in a laptop so that it can be connected to a network.

A network interface card provides the laptop with a dedicated, full-time connection to a network. Personal laptops and workstations on a local area network (LAN) typically contain a network interface card specifically designed for the LAN transmission technology.

Some NIC cards work with wired connections while others are wireless. Most NICs support either wired Ethernet or WiFi wireless standards. Ethernet NICs plug into the system bus of the PC and include jacks for network cables, while WiFi NICs contain built-in transmitters / receivers.

Due to the popularity and low cost of the Ethernet standard, most new computers have a network interface build directly into the motherboard.
