    it can be little faster but it depends on the services provider and sometimes your router. some routers are bad. I had a linkseys hooked up and i was getting 5mb bearer on speakeasy.net then i got a new linkseys router and hooked it up then i was getting 13mb bearer with a dl speed of 2000k/b sa sec amazingly fast.

    I was given a pc that has an ASUS motherboard P5LD2-VM, There are two hard drives, Pentium 4 3.20GHz 1.49GB of RAM. IT is running windows XP version 2002 SERVICE PACK 2.

    All you need to do is go online and save the LAN driver to your USB stick. The drivers are here: http://support.asus.com/download/dow...model=P5LD2-VM and are pretty small in size. Simply plug the USB drive into the PC with the ASUS motherboard and run the setup utility.
