Probably usb 1, it might be a little slower than regular DSL

Hello,

A USB network adapter won't degrade the performance if it's connected to a DSL. The old USB standard supports speeds up to 12Mbps, so unless you have an Internet connection which is faster than 12Mbps ( :amazed: ?? ) then you should be more than fine...!

The newer USB standard 2.0 supports speeds of up to 480Mbps...so there's definitely no need to worry about using USB, or whether your bus or network adapter uses version 1.0, 1.1 or the new 2.0 .
