Question Literally know nothing about ethernet


I just got a used IBM thinkpad 600x and it came with an ethernet card. The only thing I know about ethernet is that it makes your computer go faster. I don't even know which slot to put the darn thing in.
The card reads: PCMCIA Ethernet with xjack connector
10Mbps LAN Adapter
If anyone knows anything about this please post.

Thank You

it won't make your computer go faster.. but if you have broadband internet, that is faster. do you have a reason to install it. like do you have a LAN connection ( cable or dsl ) or a connection at your job. if you don't, then you have no reason to install it.
