Best Answer

A NIC or Network Interface Card/Connection.

Your computer should have a LAN interface. You can identify it with RJ45 socket (has 8 pin connector slightly bigger than a telephone socket). If it is there already ensure than the LAN port is enabled in operating system. This port need to be connected to a working LAN network socket which comes through a switch/hub/router.

What does the software Monitors AnyWhere do?

Monitors Anywhere software uses HDMI over LAN - so that one computer can display onto many screens that are not connected to the computer by a display cable, but are connected with LAN cables. So you do not need to have a computer behind each monitor. But you do need in addition to the software, HDMI over LAN hardware. This hardware replaces the conventional graphics card of a computer.. Also HDMI to LAN hardware from different manufactures cannot be installed on the same computer. The type of hardware also limits the number of monitor that can be connected. ** On April 2015 a new updated driver was released which allows you to connect any hardware manufacturer and also any number of units to a single PC. Also all HDMI over LAN components must be found in the same LAN network segment.
