Question about Computers & Internet
I have an older HP, it doesn't have an ethernet card, but it does have USB ports. I'm trying to use the USB port connection from my Time Warner Cable modem, but haven't been able to make a connection. Am I wasting my time and should I instead opt to use an ethernet card in the PCMI slot?
Although you can use a USB connection, you have experienced first hand one reason why I never recommend it. Firstly, you have to install drivers for the modem itself, usually included on the install CD. However, if you just purchased an ethernet card for under $15 locally or under $8 on the web, you plug it in, and once it's installed you just go without further complications and it is faster and more reliable as well.
