older ibm thinkpad. celeron 550mghz. came with windows ME. wiped drive and put on win xp. has 160mg of ram. thats about max. pc100? anyway, it starts ok but takes a long time to access the internet and than navigate around. i am using a wireless N usb adapter but it is only usb 1.1? the old version prior to usb 2. i can run a network cable to machine. we have high speed internet at home via comcast. would it be any faster thru the cable vs wireless? has no other programs or software.
