@op: How old is the pc you plugged the usb wireless device into? It's possible it's only communicating at usb 1.1 and slowing everything down. Also, do you have all security disabled right now? WEP can slow down a connection by as much as 50% from overhead, so it could cause some slowdowns.

Also, do you play any games on that pc? If you do I wouldn't move it at all because wireless is the worst thing you can do regardless of what game it is. I really am not a big fan of using wireless anyway so if you already have it setup to where you can be wired I would leave it as is.
Oh, i cant comment about this thread, after all its not about Verizon.
