[ale] OT: ADSL modem bottleneck

My ADSL bandwidth is nominal 256 kbps up and 1.5 Mbps down. The ADSL
modem (Alcatel 1000) has a 10BaseT (10 Mbps) connector that my router is
plugged into. When up/downloading to the Internet, am I safe to assume
that the 10BaseT connection is not the bottleneck since 10 Mbps is so
much greater than the ADSL bandwidth? The 10BaseT connector would not
start being a bottleneck until my bandwidth increased about 10 Mbps?
