Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Hi snikap - First off your pc has an integrated 10/100 fast ethernet card. It has nothing to do with your ethernet card. Second, don't believe any speeds you get from speed test sites, most of all speedtest.net. They'll tell you to use the closest server to your location. This is one of the worst things you can do when trying to judge your speed. If I do that at that site they'll tell me I'm downloading at 17MB. The only way to juge anyway at all is pick another site and run tests about 6 times during the day and night. You have to this because the traffic varies on the net when kids are home from school, when they get out of school, when people come home from work and so on. If you're paying for a 10MB line that's screaming fast. If you're interested there are some tests you can run and I can run from here to kind of get an idea of how your network is running from your pc to anywhere. Also you might want to let me know you're ISP. Let me know what kind of speeds you've been downloading at. If this answers your question PLEASE rate as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Well you really shouldent need to get a new internet card because most computers manufactured within the last 10 years have a lan port on them. the lan port is basiclly the highspeed internet port. try doing a speedtest at http://www.speedtest.net. It could be that you are downloading files from slow or bogged servers. but 10mbps is a fast connection.....veryfast.
