Fields

AsymmetricDsl AsymmetricDsl AsymmetricDsl AsymmetricDsl 94

The network interface uses an Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL).

Atm Atm Atm Atm 37

The network interface uses asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) for data transmission.

BasicIsdn BasicIsdn BasicIsdn BasicIsdn 20

The network interface uses a basic rate interface Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) connection. ISDN is a set of standards for data transmission over telephone lines.

Ethernet Ethernet Ethernet Ethernet 6

The network interface uses an Ethernet connection. Ethernet is defined in IEEE standard 802.3.

Ethernet3Megabit Ethernet3Megabit Ethernet3Megabit Ethernet3Megabit 26

The network interface uses an Ethernet 3 megabit/second connection. This version of Ethernet is defined in IETF RFC 895.

FastEthernetFx FastEthernetFx FastEthernetFx FastEthernetFx 69

The network interface uses a Fast Ethernet connection over optical fiber and provides a data rate of 100 megabits per second. This type of connection is also known as 100Base-FX.

FastEthernetT FastEthernetT FastEthernetT FastEthernetT 62

The network interface uses a Fast Ethernet connection over twisted pair and provides a data rate of 100 megabits per second. This type of connection is also known as 100Base-T.

Fddi Fddi Fddi Fddi 15

The network interface uses a Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) connection. FDDI is a set of standards for data transmission on fiber optic lines in a local area network.

GenericModem GenericModem GenericModem GenericModem 48

The network interface uses a modem.

GigabitEthernet GigabitEthernet GigabitEthernet GigabitEthernet 117
