  1. I have a router that supports 100 Mbps and under my ethernet settings I enabled 100 Mbps full duplex. What does that mean to me?

    Found this from the good guys over at www.whatis.com:

    Maybe this can help you with your question. Seems to me that you definitely want this feature enabled if at all possible.

    It means that your theoretical max data throughput is 200 mbit/sec. This is all theoretical, of course.

    And Full and Half duplex means this, Full duplex can transfer and send data at the same time where Half duplex can send data one way then the other. Think of a one lane road (half duplex) traffic can only go one way at a time, but two lane road (full duplex) can have traffic traveling both ways at the same time.
