Depends what he means by ADSL, he could mean SDSL or some other variant that
goes higher.

Depends on how the network is used. It doesn't matter for internet access, but
if the network is used for other purposes such as transfering files between
machines, printing large files on a printer connected to a different machine
etc. it can make a lot of difference. Also, ADSL can go to 8 Mbps in theory, but
I doubt we'll ever get that from BT.

which gives you ~ 1 MBytes/s of data transfer in practice, maybe 2 at
a push. 802.11b gives you 0.5 Mb/s.

So it's really quite pants for the LAN in terms of speed.


many LANs or bits of kit are only 10 M ethernet and some of them are
only half duplex.

If you want max speed then full duplex 100M wired ethernet is the way
to go - I did a small test 802.11b wireless vs wired it was 5 Mbps vs
88 Mbps in the same room. The wireless AP is half duplex 10M ethernet
connection to the switch which could be a limit.
