I understand the differences between 10baset, Fast Ethernet etc.. but what determines if your network (work) is at one or the other? Is it the routers, NICs and cabling?? thanks

It's the hub, switch or router to which the NIC is connected (assuming that the NIC is 10/100/1000 capable).

You can check the connection speed on servers and workstations or check the color of the lights on the Ethernet port. I haven't seen 10 Mbps in a long time. Hubs are 10 or 100 only.
