i don't remember that i mentioned before but i have dsl modem and have 256 kbps connection with it while i download a file from a server generally it is transferred with 27 kbits questions are coming 1- devices : pc ,modem and other modem or a router in telecom does 256 kbps tell me that there is a cable with 256 kbps between my modem and the one in telecom ? if not how can this be explained? for ex. i use cat5 eth.cable between my modem and pc that has 100 Mbps so "since there is a cable the cable gives me the speed". 2- Is 27 kbit speed for the server or my pc ?
