[access-uk] Re: Download speeds

DJ - I've looked under 'local area network' on my pc, which is wired to the 
network, and it says the connecting speed is 100.0mb; I can't find yet where 
this info is retrieved from on the laptop under the some what differently 
laid out Vista OS!

What about this wired speed of 100mbs on the PC? -
