    Same. USB modems of any kind should be moved in the same category as USB speakers.

    That category name- Unnecessary.

    No matter what angle you come at it, its true. Compare prices of USB cable modems to a NIC. Compare their speed and reliability.
    NIC wins all the way.

    Well ya still need a cable modem for a nic to connect to, and the installation cost of the nic/modem over a USB modem is higher but I figure that it's worth it. :devil:

    Most of them are, you actually have to have USB working first. You know the right motherboard drivers and whatnot. Also, most of these USB cable modems have drivers that you need to install. But the part that controls the connection is actually embedded in the modem itself. Such as the settings for the modem to link with the CMTS (Cable Modem Termination Service) at the Regional Headend.
