I have a Motorola Surfboard SB5101U. It has a USB output and a Ethernet output. I currently run the Ethernet into a Netgear router that my primary computer is wired to (all other devices run on the Wifi).
Would there be any benefit if I used the USB to connect my computer instead? My gut says the Ethernet is faster than USB but the router could cause slowdowns or latency that would be eliminated if I connect directly to the modem.
