afternoon people. i have set up port forwarding so i can play footie manager online, i currently use the usb connection. if i were to switch to ethernet connection would it automatically muck up my port forwarding? also, currently, i use ethernet for xbox live so if i keep changing over the ethernet for pc and for xbox will it muck those settings up? cheers

Well the best advice is to replace it with something good, had my new belkin router for a day and the difference is huge everything is faster and now ive got wireless and can connect 4 computers into the ethernet. port fordwarding is really easy as well.

But it shouldnt affect it you wont be able to access the router menu on the ethernet though.
