Network drivers

So I'm building a PC this summer and I was looking at tutorials. Since my build won't have a dvd writer I have to download drivers online. The problem is should I pre-download my wireless adapter driver to a usb and put it onto my new pc? Or do i get a driver for the motherboard so it allows windows to recognize a network adapter? Pretty much what I'm asking is, do I get drivers for the motherboard LAN or my wireless adapter?

All required drivers.

Windows 10 ((if that is what you are installing)should take care of most drivers, unless your motherboard has something like Killer Networking. Also you can download latest drivers for Nvidia or AMD if you are getting a dedicated graphics card.
