    Hello

    I have got my wireless all hooked up, but one question is I wanted to know waht 10/100 meant.
    would wireless be considered as LAN? and would it be counted as a network? if not what is it called.

    any help would be appreciated, I am fairly new to this, but I am learning fast.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    the 10/100 part refers to the wired part of your network and is the theoretical speed that data can be transferred, which if your using wireless, won't affect you.
    The wireless speeds are usually 11/22/54/108 or called b/g/super g.

    Wireless is considered a LAN (local area network) which is the same as calling it a network. Basically computers connected together are networked. Wireless networks are called different things by different people, wireless networks, wireless lans, wifi network etc etc. It is just the wireless form of a standard network.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    didn't realise both posts were yours, but I'm glad I could help you out again.
    I tend to be a lurker on this site, just reading various posts, seeing whats going on. I noticed yours had no replys and it was a subject I thought I could help on.

    Thats the thing with afterdawn, theres a lot of people on here willing to help.

    have fun with your computer.

    Cheers.

    Most of the time you can view this by looking into your software interface of your router.
