Correct, fast ether=100mb

actually RJ-11=fat telephone connector (that's the plastic connector)
10baseT is the cable

Correct, actually I think IEEE specs say it can go over that like to 13mb/s.

I have some no name, computer show special that's been up and running for 
a couple of years now. I think that as long as you stay with a hub (as 
opposed to a switch) it's all about the same. I can see brand loyalty when 
you move up to an intelligent device (like a switch) but then your going to 
spend more.
