I currently have a Motorola SB5101 Surfboard cable modem. It has USB and Ethernet interface... i tried using the USB and found out that it only has 12.0 Mbps (etherent is 100). But my connection is only 1Mbps. Will there be any significant change to the speed?
Numbers 6:24-26 The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
I didn't really understand the USB interface, ha ha ha.
in which case, normally hardware tend to communicate with the lowest (bandwidth/speed) available. i forgot how it's called, but you'll be fine whether USB or Ethernet.
example, you have 100Mbps hardware, but 10 users are sharing it. in theory, all the 10 users will have something close to 100Mbps. but if one more PC with a 10Mbps speed will use your network, all communications will go down to 10Mbps (kinda sucks) unless of course you have a switch that can manage multiple speeds at any given time.
USB is 12mbps, Ethernet is 100 or 1000mbps or 10,000mbps. so unless your internet subscription has a bandwidth of more than 12megabits per second choosing either wouldn't affect your surfing speed. but if you use usb for a very fast internet connection, say 20mbps, then usb gets you stuck at 12.
that's weird. definitely if you plug your RJ45 you're supposed to get a 10/100 Mbps. Where does it say its 1Mbps (LAN Connection ba janix)? Better check your LAN CARD properties pero as far as I know no 1 Mbps or I may be wrong Wont recommend using the USB since it shares bandwidth w/ other USB connections, I think Teka, what bandwidth are you getting from your ISP? Coz if its more than 1 MB lugi ka
