MOTU AVB networking audio using Windows?

So my question is simple but complex at the same time. I want to upgrade to the MOTU AVB, mainly for portable use since I'm a laptop guy, but I don't want to use the crummy USB speeds since I need to play live and need a small buffer size. I'm a Windows user and don't plan on switching to Mac for a while, so I was wondering if there was a way to send Audio/MIDI over the AVB networking protocol? Thanks to anyone that can help me.

You can't use AVB for audio - with Windows.
The latest MOTU drivers have really low latencies - if your laptop can handle it. Don't worry about the USB port, if your laptop can work at low latencies without choking, the drivers and USB port will handle plenty of audio channels.
