Question i need to get an ethernet controller

If I have the D975XBX2 motherboard (has an on-board LAN controller?) will this work? I also have a wireless card already installed (all were working properly until yesterday... and I don't know if I did anything to change that). I'd happily buy a $30 part if it meant avoiding computer hell.

Yes your motherboard does have onboard LAN controller, and drivers are here just need to choose your Windows version to get the download list, I would if you're having driver issues and in Device Manager you have yellow ! marks by any device to install the Intel Chipset driver first, then install the LAN driver.
