    DSL

    • DSL stands for digital subscriber line. DSL transmits digital data over copper telephone lines. The most common type of DSL is asymmetric DSL.

    DSL Speeds

    • DSL is considerably faster than dial up, which can only reach speeds of 56Kbit/second. The fastest DSL connection can achieve speeds up to 20Mbit/second.

    Asymmetric DSL

    • The download speed on a DSL connection is typically much faster than the upload speed, meaning users receive more data than they send. DSL download speeds can reach up to 9Mbit/second while upload speeds top out at 640Kbit/second.

    WiFi

    • WiFi, or wireless fidelity, refers to a local area network, or LAN, that uses radio waves to send data a short distance, up to 1,000 feet. The term WiFi is a trademark of the WiFi Alliance and is only used to describe wireless networks that meet IEEE 822.11 standards.

    DSL and WiFi

    • You can have a DSL connection and a WiFi connection at the same time. WiFi can also be used with fiber optic or cable connections. The wireless router is connected to the DSL modem using an Ethernet cable.
