Ok, so the computer that I've been using for the past year or so (and my first one that I have all to my own) is pretty old and run down. It only has 256 megs of ram, 2.0 ghz processor, nvidia geforce mx420 (or something like that, the video card is from the 90s) - basically it's past its prime. But now I just got a (very slightly) newer computer from my cousin for free. It has 512 megs of ram, a 2.8 ghz processor, and a USB 2.0 port (omg right??). So I was just wondering - with the 2.0 port, should I connect my iPod or my wg111 netgear wireless adapter to it. There's only one port, and I sync my iPod all the time, but I also go on the internet almost daily. They're the only two USB 2.0 devices I have, so it's either one or the other.

Also, my router is a piece of junk also. It's pretty old and I can't really see it giving me too fast of speeds to begin with. It would usually give me download speeds of about 200 kb/s on my old computer, but that was USB 1.1 ports.

Windows XP home edition 2002 SP3 Dell dimension dim3000 intell pentium 4 CPU 2.80 GHz 512 mb of ram.
