They can be added in at the time of purchase, and some enthusiast motherboard's have them built-in, but it is extremely uncommon....hence Bill2's post.

Oh right, thanks for that.

I've found mine invaluable because it means I can place my rig exactly where I want it, but can also connect my router to the main incoming telephone socket, which gives me a reliable wi-fi connection that very rarely drops.
