The problem is not the networkcard! It's also not the network! It's the internet connection! You won't get a higher connection speed because of a new networkcard!

And I think if you had 100mbps (megabytes per second) you could download DC in 10 seconds or less!

It's Megabits per second not MegaBytes. Like i have 8 Mbit dsl, it means that (in theory) i download at 8192 bits per second, which is 1 MB (MegaByte) per second, now due to server not allowing speeds like that and the connection between you and the server you will rarely get your full speed, but if you would it would only take 591 seconds to download DC, which equals 9 minutes and 51 seconds.

And upgrading your network card will not do a thing to your speed, unless your network cards supported speed is lower than the one your isp supports, which is unlikely to be the case unless you have some super isp or a shitty network card.

Sad, but true. :(

I would have gone with the 802.11b wireless setup instead of the 802.11g last year if I'd been thinking correctly. My ISP only offers 3mbps, so the b's 11 would have been more than adequate at a substantially reduced priced. The only speed benefit to my g's 54mbps is transferring huge files on my home network.

I'm such a junky though, I just couldn't pass on the g! :)

So it would be about 60 seconds! Still very short time for 700 mb! But unfortunately internet connections won't be so fast soon!

That new network card is only useful to large companies. Like with T1 and T5 connections. There is no connection that is available to the general public, that will be capable of downloading at 100 mb per second.

Sorry to rain on your parade pal but, my network is already 1000MBITS/sec. but my dsl connection is 2.5MBITs down / .512 UP so that going to limit things. Plus, your download speed is only as fast as the connection that you are getting it from.

Ah.... See, that 100mb per second is the limit of data that can go through. If you have 10 computers downloading something, and they reach that 100 mb limit, serious slowdown will occur to any other additional computers that attempt to use the network.

Yeah, I have Gigabit LAN also. Of course most ADSL/Cablemodems only support 10/100 network anyway, so even if he had a Gigabit LAN card and a Gigabit ISP connection he would still need to buy a new ADSL/Cable Modem. Hehe.
