    adsl is capable of more than 10mbps?

    as far as i know its only capable of 8mbps, and possibly that 10 mbps is the connection between your computer and the router.

    Wish I could get even 1/4 of that.

    Here in the Philippines with a 256K line, we are lucky to get 180+kbps and on a good day, which isn't often, can crack it for a 207kkbs.

    Lucky you :)
    Do you use a 100 mbit network card to get more than 10 mbit?

    I just did a lil lookin around and most DSL modems don't even have a 100mbps wan port which means the fastest that could ever be achieved is 10mbps anyway
