My computer has no usb facility and i want to attach adsl modem. The ISP specifies
The USB port must be capable of supplying full 500 mA required by the USB. My question is will a USB to RS232 Connector replicate the usb reqs?

Ask your ISP to give you a proper modem with an ethernet interface, then get a network card. Your situation will be much better than with
a USB connection.

If you're satisfied with my comment, I'm glad you finlized this so quickly. If, however, you're not really helped by the tangential suggestion i gave, you may go to Community support and ask for a refund.

I should have added that I do not think that an ordinary COM (RS232) port will be able to supply 500 mA. A converter for RS232 - USB is supposed to handle the signal not the power, but I doubt that you'd be very happy with an internet connection of that kind anyway, were it possible to set up.
