I have this predicament. Upon getting my new laptop, I needed to purchase a Wireless Router in order to hook it up to the internet. Only problem is that it my old Compaq was incapable of being the host for the router. So I was also forced to buy a wireless USB antenna thingy. Only problem with that is the fact my Compaq has a 1.1 USB port, and the USB Antenna is only 2.0 compatible.

My question is, is it possible to buy some kind of device that allows me to convert the 1.1 USB to 2.0 USB, or am I going to have to replace the whole thing?

Any help is much appreciated.

Your compaq's a desktop? If so you can get a PCI card that has 2.0 USB compatibility. It'll be around 10-20 bucks normally.
