Hi,

I need a solution for a two way sattilite modem/transciever. The device connects with a USB interface.
I want to connect this device to a Watchguard SOHO firewall/VPN device. The Watchguard hardware does not support USB.
What options if any would I have to connect this stuff together?

There is this device :

You can get a USB- To -RJ45 converter to do the job.

Yes.... but that device needs a driver and a driver cannot be loaded onto the router.

You could setup a cheap PII 333 machine as a router. Load Linux on it put 10/100 NIC in it and just loop through the Box back to the watchdog. That would get your USB Sattilite to RJ45.

You can load just the services you want to use. Thier are a few trimmed down versions of Linux you can use.
