I have just upgraded to broadband and the connection is via a USB port. As I have not got the faster USB 2 installed will this mean broadband running slow or is USB 1.1 enough for broadband?
You should be ok. However having a USB 2 is by far the better option.
USB 1.1 copes very happily with broadband's current speeds and, if necessary, up to 8MB - after that you will need USB 2.0
No problems, I used to use a USB on my 98se comp now connected by Router modem as I have three comps I can connect at anytime whether the other are on or not
If you need to get USB 2.0 at some stage, you could install an inexpensive PCI USB 2.0 card - assuming it's a desktop & you have an empty PCI slot. If you have a laptop with a serial port, you could get a serial to USB 2.0 adaptor, which also doesn't cost too much. G
Just for comparison (I'm aware it's not using USB in this case) my TDK CD rewriter burning at 16x is transferring data quicker than my 2MB broadband connection.
Thanks guys - I guess I won't splash out on a new USB 2 just yet
Something to keep in mind though is that a USB 2.0 card is quite cheap typicaly between £10 and £20 but agree with the others for BB USB 1.0 is fine.
