      Re: how fast is a ethernet cable

      The Sky routers have 10/100 Mbps ethernet ports and 802.11g wireless, which has a maximum of 54 Mbps.

      If you connect your own wireless-N router you can get between 108 Mbps and 300 Mbps dependent on the type of router and the adaptors used. The newer ones will have Gigabit ethernet (1000 Mbps), but your computer will need a Gigabit port also to take advantage. The increased speeds are only useful for transferring data around your internal network, you won't get transfer rates much above 1-2 Mbps from the internet.
