NETWORK INTERFACE CARD (NIC)

A network interface card (NIC) is a hardware component, typically a circuit board or chip, which is installed on a computer so that it can connect to a network.

A computer's network card works by taking the data given to it by the CPU and sending it to a destination. It translates the data into a form that can be transferred via cables and then translates the data it receives back into data usable by the computer.

NIC driver is the software that controls the network hardware — specifically, the network interface card (NIC).
