    I would have thought there'd be less overheads with a USB adapter? The processing power is obviously going to make for a (slight) decrease in your PC's performance, but (I'd imagine) the router adds one more hop to the overall journey, as instead of the packet going from PC > Net (as per a USB Modem) it has to go PC > Router > Net? Or am I horribly misinformed?
