Other 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet network adapters should work as well, but Intel adapters have been quite robust and unproblematic.


Trinet strongly recommends regular swiches instead of routers for sharing a connection between multiple computers. Also devices with 1 Gbps Ethernet ports may give better performance and be a longer term investment.

We have no specific recommendations for switch models at the moment but the following are inexpensive choices:
