Netgear Questions

I'm just switching to Broadband and I'm planning on getting the Netgear DG834GT wireless modem which will be connected to my Win 2000 PC.

I have another PC also running Win 2000 downstairs and therefore plan to buy a USB adapter for that one.. However the USB ports on the PC are only 1.1 and not 2.0

Therefore Can I still use the USB adapter.
The PC downstairs will on be used for email and occasional web browsing.
I have asked Netgear, but haven't got a response as yet..

Thanks in advance

Jules

An 802.11g USB network adapter has a nominal data transfer speed of 54Mbps, whereas USB 1.1 tranfers at only 12Mbps so its performance will be restricted to, in effect, the 802.11b standard of 11Mbps.

For internet access, this shouldn't be a problem, it's only with file transfers betweeen PCs that the reduced speed becomes significant.

Thanks for the information.
For what this PC is going to be used for (email and low end interenet use) that will be fine.

Regards
