All you need is a basic 10 / 100 card then. That is as fast as your router can handle

For home use a 10BaseT/100Base-T card will work just fine.

What type of LAN card does it have now?

Will the sever be used to for clients within the same network or on a remote network?

Some of these questions will not change which LAN card to get, but could change if you need one.  An example would be, you are setting up a sever to sever up Web pages over the Internet and your Internet connection is a T1.  In that situtation any off the shelf 10 Mbps LAN card would work as the limitation is the T1 (1.54 Mbps) not your LAN.

Most LAN cards are the same until you get into the 10G range.

The question may sound simple but for the correct answer we need more info. What model is the router your connecting to? This so we can point you to a compatible card.
