I am on freeserve broadband, and am using the Zoom X4 (available from PC
world)
I have the USB connected to the PC, and the Ethernet connected to the
Playstation2.
Works perfectly well without having to change any of the settings (excepting
username and password obviously)

I get good download speeds for what i need

Downstream 465 Kbps (58.1 KB/sec) 502 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 242 Kbps (30.3 KB/sec) 261 Kbps (inc. overheads)

(from adslguide.org.uk)

Maybe someone else can help out here. If i was to get a small switch(?) or
router so that both the PC and PS2 were on ethernet, would i get any
performance benefits?

Hope that is of some help

regards
Neal

Hi,
the only performance benefit would be faster transfers on the
local network, as ethernet cards are faster than USB (unless the
router is usb2, which is unlikely). However, in your case, as you
only have a PC and a PS2, you would not gain anything. The only
reason to consider making this change would be if the overhead of
using the USB connection to the router was high, or the driver was
unstable.


Cheers. I'll stick with my current set up for the moment then.
May introduce the laptop at some time in the future, but it doesn't get used
that much
