Um, no quite true old boy. 10base2 was 10Mbps. Throughput was slower
(compared to a switch based network rather than a hub based one) due to all
cards sharing the same bandwidth, but I assure you that the bandwidth was
10Mbps. The biggest drawback was some clod removing the terminator or t
piece from his card.
Brian is correct. The bag, since it contains loads of t pieces, is most
likely full of ex-LAN bits. A dead giveaway would be a couple of 50R
terminators (look just like BNCs with a plastic end cap where the cable
would go) in the bag with them. These you _could_ bell out with an Ohmmeter
to ascertain their impedance.
