that is the problem with USB modems..  there are no routers that I know of that use this interface, only standard RJ45 ports...   We have discussed this before in these forums, and the usual result is that you need to purchase a standard modem with ports that allow CAT5 to connect the modem and the router...

I think that many ISP's do this to keep their customers from installing these devices..  A real shame, since I personally don't like to use ICS to run a network..
