Ethernet Standards NIC for Home Networking



Ethernet is a networking standard that helps to ensure that all computer networking technologies from different vendors can work together on a network. The standard was developed in 1980 by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and is officially known as the 802.3 standard.


Gigabit PCI Card

Gigabit PCI Card


Supported Ethernet standards are listed in the specifications and datasheets of various networking hardware and on the product packaging. Here’s what to look for and what it all means:


  • 10BASE-T: Supports data rates up to 10 Mbps (megabits per second).
  • 100BASE-TX: Supports data rates up to 100 Mbps.
  • 1000BASE-T: Supports data rates up to 1000 Mbps (or 1 Gbps, gigabit per second).


If you think you’ve spotted a pattern here, you’re absolutely correct! The first number (10, 100, or 1000 in these examples) denotes the speed in Mbps. BASE indicates that the cable uses baseband signaling, in which a single signal is transmitted over a wire, as opposed to broadband signaling, in which many signals across a wide range of frequencies are transmitted over a channel (or wire). Finally, T or TX indicates that it uses twisted-pair cables.


Do not confuse megabytes (MB) and megabits (Mb). Megabytes describe the amount of disk storage or memory. Megabits are used to describe the speed of a network connection (including your Internet connection). While mega- means the same thing in both terms — that is, 1000 — a byte is equivalent to 8 bits. So a megabyte is 8 times larger than a megabit.
