- From what I've tested, if it uses a pci network card, you should 
be able to take anything dsl can dish out (no pun intended).  If 
you are using ISA, then your performance may vary.  On 486's 
that use, I've only been able to get up to 3 megabits per 
second.  The latency wasn't noticable, it only added about 5 ms 
to ping times on the UNL network - again, this was on ISA.  On 
the PCI systems I've used, the latency was 1 or lower ms added 
to the ping times.  Both tests were done on 10 megabit 
connections to the UNL network.
