Ok, well somewhere between 10 and 100 will do me for speed.

The point of the upgrade is to stream video at about 20 Megs
rather than 10 Megs.
If we go any higher than that, our Network Admin people 
may jump on us for hogging the campus network. :-)

However, your suggestions of Intel cards are good.

It has made me think of a Plan. :-)
I'm considering good quality cards for our router,
and let the users on our subnet have what ever cards they want.

That way, our router will not be a bottleneck.
