This will probably seem like a stupid question but please bear with me. I've had an ongoing problem with my USB connection to Tiscali 1mb unlimited. Now I've given up on sorting it and wanted to buy a PCI router card for use with my Tiscali account to connect to my Broadband, just to see if that solves it. Now comes the stupid question bit. I thought that ADSL and Broadband was basically 2 names for the same thing. However on having a look at some of the suppliers of routers I see some listed as ADSL and some listed as Broadband. Are they the same thing and just listed under 2 different headings to make it easier to find or is there some difference. If there is a difference which do I buy? Anyone have a recommendation for a PCI router that works well and preferably isn't too pricey?
Then there's the term "DSL" which obviously covers both assymetric and symmetrical lines, but also cable services. In router terminology "cable/DSL" is a common way of differentiating between routers and modem/routers, the latter of which are for ADSL/SDSL.....
Rubberband is a new kind of highly flexible broadband service that adjusts its speed and bandwitdh allowance across all the IPs in a given contention ratio group to optimise performance for any given activity or usage pattern.
I am, of course, pulling your leg! LOL. But the first paragraph is true.
