At home we have cable (though I'm on the wireless side of it)... I'm at school, and it's either wireless of some sort, or I think either DSL or an Ethernet line, though knowing me, those are the same thing. Either way, it's fast?

I have dial-up, it's sad but true. I hate it with a passion but it allows me to get online.

We've got DSL and Ethernet here, but we might as well have Dial-Up, 'cause the DSL hates me, (no joking, it really will go to extreme lengths just to not work for me,) and anytime it rains the DSL usually cuts out, and whenever someone picks up the phone it cuts out, anyway! :( :smt095 :smt095 :smt095 :smt095 :smt074 :smt074 :smt074 :smt074 :smt077 :smt077 :smt077 :smt077
