I'm shopping around for internet access and the service provider that I'm interested in has several speed options for DSL.
The lower speed options (1.5Mbps, 7Mbps) offer self-installation, but the higher speed options (12Mbps, 20Mbps, 40Mbps) require a professional installation with one fee for 1 computer and a more expensive fee for 2-3 computers.
- Do these higher speeds involve some special setup on each computer?
- How do I figure out how fast my network cards can operate?
I have two Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) computers and one Windows 7 laptop.
I have no problem with paying a technician to setup my DSL modem if it requires something special, but I'm just suspicious that it costs more with more computers.
