Home network with a USB ADSL Modem

  1. The ISP gave me a USB ADSL Modem for internet acces. The model is SpeedTouch 330 and it connects to the computer through a USB interface instead of an ethernet interface. I have 2 computers at home and want to network them. The ISP wants me to pay more money for the extra computer, but that's not gonna happen. As a workaround I considered buying my own ADSL Router and ditching the one given to me by the ISP.

    Any suggestions?

    Before plunking down any of my own money i would contact the ISP and tell them your machine cannot use the USB modem and you need one with a network interface.
    Save your money for a wireless router and card which you'll need to complete your setup.

    Netgear makes a 4-port router with a USB port for USB modems. It also has wireless built in.

    I have one but don't use the USB feature on it.

    The model is WGT634U .
