USB pc advisor review sep 2006

As I still have a problem with my USB connection, I read in PC Advisor Magazine SEPT. 2006 issue, under "REVIEWS" an interesting article relating to a Brother DCP-340CW all-in-one printer. Forget the review, but a paragraph ststed..." ..... We recommend using a network to drive this device as the USB connection is only a SLOW USB 2.0 Full-Speed port!!!
( A) I thought USB2 WAS fast and
( B) how does this hi-speed connection work?
What is meant by using a network to drive this device?
I would welcome something to speed up my external devices, as another member also wishes.
Confused - again!

USB 1.1 was 12 Mbps, USB 2.0 was 240 Mbps but was update to 480 Mbps which is what I presume they mean by slow, the slow will be 240.

This is my guess by the way I do not know if this is what they mean.
If you have USB 2.0 then its probably the faster USB of 480 I don't know how to test this for sure, but would be fairly sure this is what you have.
If it says enhanced under USB controllers in device manager then you have USB 2.0.
