ADSL Modem – USB Vs Ethernet (RJ45)

From the time ADSL has been introduced to Sri Lanka, one of the main question people ask when buying a modem is, should I buy a USB Modem or a Ethernet Modem (the one with RJ45 connectors). US Robotics tries to answer that question for you in this white paper.

Choose USB if:

Choose Ethernet if:

There are other limitations with the USB Modems,

The last two observations are just from the experiences I have had with couple of USB Modems (Prolink, Planet) and couple of Ethernet Modems (Netgear, Aztech). Both USB modems lacked the ability to reconnect automatically after a disconnection and ability to manage connection themselves rather than having to dial in with the user name and password every time.

My advise, always go for a Ethernet Modem.
