Hi guys,
all i know about LAN (local area network) speed is : when we want to reach 1Gb speed we have to fit the requirements such as : cable cat6, LAN card & switch both support for Gigabyte.
Once, in my place, i use the cable cat 5 and then plug in my notebook (LAN card support for Gigabyte) and the switch also support for the Gigabyte too (Switch HP Procurve), then i check my speed connection is : 1Gbps.
How come?
So, can i assume, with using only two things : LAN card & switch that both supported for Gigabyte, i can simply reach the 1Gbps speed commection?

Need your info..
Thx a lot
