That's a good point. You should submit a crypto.cat answer.

Not me, but probably because the question is 3 years old.

comment Computer architecture: Are USB keyboards less responsive due to narrow IRQ range?
I think the IRQ difference is negligible compared to the polling rate difference. PS/2 is limited to 100Hz, while USB defaults to 125, with the ability to poll at 1000Hz. I have a hard time imagining a USB input getting stuck in the usb controller or PCIe bus for more than 5 whole milliseconds.

1. This question is 8 months old. 2. My answer says what your comment says. If outdated, non-WPA/2+AES, encryption is used, data rates are slower. The implication bring the best encryption will allow better data rates.

No. Your computer is not actually on the ISP level network. Gaining access to that network would require ISP level access, which is unlikely these days without a court order or something.
