    Has anybody tried using an ethernet to USB adaptor. I saw one at Fry's for $20. I normally do not have need for ethernet but one hotel I have stayed at
    seems to only have an in room ethernet connection to get on line.
    Would I notice any difference between an adaptor that supports USB 2 vs USB 1 while surfing the internet?

    I've used a Cisco adapter. It worked fine. Apple makes one too.

    USB 1 is very slow. There's no reason to get a crappy adapter that doesn't support USB 2.
