There's broadband "speed" (bandwidth) and then there's latency (travel time) . A link cable is probably sending small amounts of data, but with virtually no latency. Sending data over the internet introduces significant latency no matter what your "speed" is. At best you could probably get Netlink via VOIP type results.

Anyone know how many bits the serial connection uses on the DC? Surly it cant just be one bit


I think it is 2Mbps. Could be wrong
