  The audio cd one is also probably simple, what programs are you trying to 
play them with ? There are usually two solutions, connect an audio cable to 
the soundcard from the cd player, the less cpu hungry solution or enable 
digital playback in the players.

  Another question is does your modem/router have an ethernet port ? If it 
does use that instead, it is less cpu hungry and generally a lot easier to 
configure than the usb one.
