Is this SpeedTouch modem an alternative?

Operating System: XP Home.

I currently use SpeedTouch 330 modem (USB) for my Tiscali 512 Kbps broadband.

I understand that Ethernet cable is faster. Can I replace it with SpeedTouch 510v6?
Would you recommend the following as an alternative.

I use a Speedtouch 536 which is very similar to the one you are looking at. It will connect to Tiscali with the usual set up of username and so on.

Yes ethernet is generally quicker than USB but you may not notice the difference in any significant practical way.

The importance of a more up to date modem router is that not all older ones can benefit from the up to 8 meg. I cannot comment on whether your current one does or not. If you are going tp network then consider a wireless one which still can go hardwired or if you want hardwiring consider one with 2+ ethernet.
