He has an
Atheros AR8132PCIE Fast Ethernet Controller
and mine is
Intel® 82578DC Gigabit Ethernet Connection
How do I tell how fast an Ethernet Controller is? I can't understand what I read. My son told me his was faster than mine, so I stopped at Staples and got a new one, a
NetGear Gigabit Ethernet PCI Adapter GA311
My son says that is the same, speedwise as the one I already have in my machine ... someone please tell me how to figure out all this.
