Question 1:

Many college dorms have OC3 connnection, which reaches speeds up to 155 Mbps. However, a typical ethernet card usually has "10 Mbps", does it mean that it can only transfer data at 10 Mbps despite the OC3 connection?

Question 2:

Is the term "10BaseT" on a network card equivalent to "10/100" ?

Answers needed. Thanks

A 10 Mb ethernet card can ONLY transfer data at a maximum of 10 Mb.  A 10/100Mb card means it can switch to either 10 Mb. or 100 Mb. depending on your "pipeline" supply.  A 100 Mb card can theoretically move data at the full 100Mb speed but it WILL NOT exceed the 1200 Mb. limit.
