    Hi

    atm i have a bt voyager 2091 router that is connected to my desktop pc via usb. and i sometimes use the wireless for nintendo ds. i was wondering if the usb drive would slowdown boottime more than than using wireless? any ideas?

    because ifg wireless slows it down less at bootime and more reliable i might buy a wirless dongle or card.

    notice to mods i didnt know what forum to post it in so move if if needed ty

    thanks in adavance

    You should post your question to a hardware forum, as this has nothing to do with security, nor with firewalls.

    There's no right place here on Wilders Security forums.

    Sure there is. It's called software & services and that's where this is now.

    Lodore,

    You will probably get more replies to this type of thread at DSLReports.
    USB routers are not very common, and I can't find any info (technical or otherwise) on your model at all.
    Unless there are some psychic helpers here, you will have to provide more technical information on what you have and what you want to do.

    it its because its the router they give free to bt customers or at least used to when they signed up. I wanted a router so they gave it to me for £10.
    so there isnt much info about it.
