Need to replace ethernet card (?) in Pavilion P7-1026

Pavilion P7-1026
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My wired desktop internet connection cuts out for a few seconds every 3 to 5 minutes.  Laptops are able to access the internet wirelessly via the router.  My conclusion is that the ethernet adaptor (card?) needs to be replaced.  I've done some searching but can't work out what I need to buy (what it's called), what specs (speed?), and where to put it (a card slot? replace something there?).  I'd prefer to keep a wired connection as it's much faster. 

 

The product specs say it's currently:

LAN: 10-Base-T
  • Technology: PCI Realtek RTL8105E

  • Data transfer speeds: up to 10/100 Mb/s

  • Transmission standards:10-Base-T Ethernet

 

The system info shows this:

The SpeedTest shows:

ScreenHunter_311 Jul. 14 18.35.png

 

AT&T says downstream speed is up to 18 mbps

 

Thanks for any help.
