    hey everybody.....quick question. I have no idea what I'm talking about, so hang with me on this one, ok? Ok. I have a Sawtooth. It has an ethernet speed of 10/100Base-T. Now, I noticed that, for example, the Quicksilver has an ethernet speed of 10/100/1000Base-T. What exactly does this mean? Is my internet going to run slooooooowly on the Sawtooth? Thanks

    No worries!

    100mbit is more than enough for almost any internet connection.

    If you've got DSL, about 8Mbit is the limit... Some cable companies give a connection speed of about 20 mbit... for home users, i've never ever seen more than 50mbit... and even that is redicilously fast...
