    Ethernet vs. wireless

    Is there such a thing as a 5 Ghz Ethernet card, or is just 5 Ghz wireless?

    No - 2.4/5 GHZ refer to the wireless frequency.

    Ethernet comes in two speeds mostly - older 100 Mb/s (100 megabits) or more modern 1000 Mb/s (1 Gigabit). Of course, these are usually much faster than internet speeds even for slower 100 Mb/s unless you have amazingly fast broadband.
