So today I received some Pentium 3 motherboards I recently purchased, and one thing I guess I completely overlooked is the lack of onboard ethernet. There's a phone jack but no ethernet. And there's only 2 PCI slots, which will be filled with a sound and a video card, so I have no other room for expansion. So I'm thinking my only option here for an ethernet connection is a USB solution.
Considering it has an Intel 810 chipset, I'm assuming that the USB specification is 1.1.
Considering the theoretical max speed is 12mbps, what kind of speed could I realistically expect using some kind of ethernet to USB adapter? And does anybody out there have any experience using such an adapter?
