Ethernet Card Question
I have 2 Ethernet cards. Which one should I use in my computer? One is a 10/100 mps card and the other is a 10 mps card. Will the one that is 10/100 be faster for internet surfing or does it really make any difference? What advantage does one have over the other , if any?

For Broadband Internet access, Either will do, since cable and dsl do not come close to 10Mbps. The 10/100 card is good for internal networks that can give you 100Mbps.

I think that answers my question. It looks like for surfing the internet it won't make a difference. My one computer has a 10/100 mps ethernet card and my other computer has just a 10 mps card. When I do bandwidth tests on each computer there is really no noticeable difference. I was thinking about replacing the 10 mps card with a 10/100 mps card but I guess it won't really matter for internet purposes.
