I am about to install my cable modem. I have a choice of usb or ethernet card. Which should I choose ? NTL recommends using usb as its simpler but is this the most effective method ?

Your oppinions would be appreciated

USB is prown to problems ethernet is faster 4 online games and downloads is simple to install if u have a nete#work card and is not incompatible with stupid drivers

I agree less problems with ethernet

From what i've seen on here some find one or the other better so it's different experiences. I've got mine connected to an ethernet, as more did prefer it than USB

I had problems with ntl BB (it turned out the activaton code sent to my set top had failed 3 times) so I spoke to several ntl techies and they all said go ethernet if you have it for reliability and performance.
So I did and I have a spare USB port.
