The ethernet card provides a standardized way of connecting computers together to create a network. Because DSL technology requirements far exceeds the lower speed limits of standard serial/parallel connections now built-in most PCs, a connection technology capable of interfacing at higher speeds was required; Ethernet technology, capable of sustaining traffic volumes of up to 10MB, was chosen as the technology of choice.

Cardbus is the trade name for an advanced PC Card specification which is used primarily in notebook and portable computers. It fits into the slot like a conventional PC Card. But it's performance is enhanced over conventional PC cards with support for direct memory access, usse of a 32-bit path for data transfer and an operating speed which is several times greater.
