Network adapter for beginners

Hi, I’m a student and I’m just entering the huge world of cybersecurity. At the moment I have a Lenovo Ideapad laptop, and it works decently. Looking at different penetration testing tutorials I see that many recommend to buy a network adapter, so you can have the possibility to use the network card in monitor mode or do packet injection. The laptop’s network adapter can get into monitor mode (unfortunately I have to reboot the computer to get it back into managed mode), but I haven’t tried if it supports packet injection yet. Would you advise me to buy a network adapter, obviously not a very powerful one (at least for now), although it can already do several things? Thanks in advance

I am very satisfied with my Alfa network adapter Model: AWUS036NHA.
