Hi Speed USB Host Controller

Specs: Windows XP
Trying to install Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter to one of my computers which is Windows XP. I received a pop up saying it would work faster if I had a Hi Speed USB Host Controller. I don't know what a Host Controller is and is this something that can be downloaded?

A USB Host Controller is the hardware (chipset or card) which controls the hardware-bus to the USB port (see link below). Being hardware, it cannot be downloaded. You could, however, find a high-speed (USB 2.0 or better) USB card that may work with your machine, if you feel it would significantly increase your speed on the wireless adapter.

If you feel the wireless is working properly, no.
