10BASE-2—10Mbps networking using a smaller, more flexible coaxial cable (RG-58) than 10BASE-5. Devices on the network connect to the cable using BNC connectors. Also known as thinnet.
10BASE-5—10Mbps networking using a coaxial cable (RG-8 or RG-11) larger than one used by 10BASE-2. To attach a network drop to connect a device to the coaxial cable, the cable is tapped by punching a hole through the cable (a procedure often referred to as a vampire tap). Also known as thicknet.
10BASE-T—10Mbps networking using CAT 3 or CAT 5 twisted-pair wiring and RJ-45 connectors. A wiring concentrator such as a hub or switch is used to connect devices on the LAN.
100BASE-T—100Mbps networking using CAT 5 or 5e twisted-pair wiring ...
