i wanted to know whats the best way to hookup a cable modem to a PC to squeeze every last little bite of performance or stability out of it.
is it to run it directly via USB 2, or network card or some other way ? if NIC card, which ones specifically and why ? what is the difference ?
i am currently runing a brand new RCA digital / broadband cable modem as the old 3Com sharkfin thing took a big crapola on me, thats hooked up via 3 com fast ethernet. anything specific i could do to improve this setup ?
BTW the cable modem has to stay as is due to the fact its required by the cable company.
