    Assuming that you have a laptop, try using a PC Card (PCMCIA) rather than USB as they are more efficient with your PC's resources. Any good brand should be OK. I haven't found one better than another. Ensure that you have the latest Vista drivers.

    Yes use a PCI card. Even more efficient, especially if you get a Bus Master (which think that they mostly are these days). Just ensure that it comes with, or you can get, Vista 64 drivers for it.
