I'd be very surprised if USB 1.0/2.0 affected sync speed but not if it affected your actual speed achieved.

Routers can give better sync speed and all in all are a far better solution.

Using a USB 2 modem isn't going to increase your sync speed per se. The speed of your USB port only determines the daterate between the modem and your PC. The sync rate is the locked datarate between your modem and the outside world Wink

AFAIR USB 1.1 was spec'd up to 12 Mbit/sec, so would handle max ADSL rates much of the time (nothwithstanding other devices competing for USB bandwidth).

A different / better modem may achieve a better sync rate due to better / more tollerent design, and that could be USB or router based. In general the best ADSL routers will give better performance.
