USB 1.1 will run slower than USB 2.0 in this instance. Typical ethercards run 10/100mbs in the pci form but is connection dependant. So to answer your question, to run a wireless USB lan you must upgrade the USB 1.1 to USB 2.0 by adding a PCI USB add-on card. If you go the direct RJ-45 10/100 NIC card method you can attain higher transfer speeds ona closed network.
