    Hi guys,

    I am a newbie in Networking and i use a broadband connection, of 128 KBPS. I use a USB modem and usually get download rates of 16 KBPS Max in my BitTorrent applications. Will there be any increase in my speed, if I use a Ethernet Card?

    Please reply quick!

    128/8 = 16 kBps, your theoritically highest available speed. Using a USB or any other damn port doesnt have anything to do with the speeds.

    Maybe that's because he has a 256 kbps connection. Anyway, ethernet will give you a more stable connection than USB.

    You can be rest assured that the speed difference you are observing has nothing to do with your modem connecting to USB or Ethernet port. USB has enough bandwidth to support such small amount of data transfer. Most probable reason is that your friend is joking with you and has a 256kbps connection instead of 128kbps one that you have.

    USB can handle connection upto 12Mbps easily without any trouble signs i don't think 128kbps will face ny performance lag in USB connection .

    Aab kya loge! me on 256kbps connection get max dload speed of 32kbps wich is just double than u specified @ ur 128kbps
