    Post usb ethernet speed..

    Hello,
    I am putting the finishing touches on my Mp3 Car machine. You can read my sig below to see what I have. I want a usb ethernet card. i have seen 10 meg ones and auto switching 10/100. USB cant run at 100 mbs right? Would there be that much of an advantage to get a 100 or should i just spring for the 10 meg?

    USB has a max of 3 MB/s (18 Mb/s)

    so you could get the 10, or if you get a 100 it can only go up to 18

    Unless you get usb 2.0, which does over 400 MB/s

    don't know if it's out yet, though

I havent had the money to start my project untill recently and it has gotten off the ground. So anyways, the point of this message is to say HI to everyone and I have been following all of your guys projects and questions nad have learned alot. I want to say many thanks to everone for their input and detailed help, even though they dind't know they were... Also, I have figured out a way to control my mp3 player... how to selected songs, browse, ect very convinetly. I Don't think nayone has done this approach before. It was kind of talked about. I just did it. I will reveal this soon when I hve some pics ect. So anyways, hi and thanks to all!! =)

    Arby,
    thanks for the info. I think I will spring for the 10/100 since my main hub is a 12 port 100 3-com. So, I would have to switch hubs to use a 10 meg. I guess the 100 it is!

    Are you sure your hub isn't 10/100? Most of the 100mbps hubs accept 10mbps connections as well. The rest of the network can run at 100mbps at the same.

    USB is specified at 12mbps, but due to hardware and software limitations the throughput usually ends up being somewhere in the 5mbps - 8mbps range, or lower depending on your system.

    USB 2.0 is supposed to be out soon with 400mbps data rates. I saw a demo at Comdex (they were playing a DVD over USB 2.0 using an IDE-USB converter with perfect smooth video!) but haven't heard of anything since.

    If not I would go with the 10/100 converter.

    Yep, I am positive it isnt auto sensing. They are too expesnive =) I got my 3-com 12 port 100 mpbs hub for only 50 buxs on ebay. This thing flys! We had a lan party and I transferred 1.5gigs to a friend in a few minutes. We set up an ftp at the land instead of using network neigherbor hood, hah. So, I guess the 10/100 is my best bet. Oh yeah, recieved my touch screen and my maxim chips for my dual serial board today. Can't wait to install em!
