Cable Modem: USB Or Ehernet
by Dariusxx - 3/9/05 6:49 AM
Which is the better way to connect for a USB Modem. USB 2.0 or Ethernet.
I had read that ethernet does not use as much cpu resources as usb. Is that true?
I had read that they operate at the same speed for the connection (usb at 6 mps and ethernet at 10?) is this correct?
I have an old P3 500 mhz 384 ram and I am slways running out of resrouces. I was wondering if connecting by the ethernet card might help this. I notice that my cpu is almost always running at 100%.
One last question. Are cable modems able to run faster with USB 2.0 or do you have to have a specific USB cable modem to do this?
