Dear Larry Bryant

No, there is no distinction involving Ethernet network card and Ethernet adapter. In general they permit a computer to connect with the rest of the network via a Cat5 wire and set up communication with that network. Ethernet network card is a PCMCIA NIC and  Ethernet adapter is just an exterior USB NIC. A NIC is strictly a form factor of an add-in card in the network adapter hardware, as a PCI or PCMCIA card. For your kind information Ethernet Adapter, Network Card and NIC all are transposable.

Hope you've got your answer.

Hi there user:

Ethernet Adapter and Ethernet Card have the same function, although the other one use slot and the other is USB. But there’s no basic difference between these two. They’re both Network Interface card which handles an interface to a unit network, and allows a network capable unit to access to that network.

Thanks for posting your query.
