    What MoBo?
    Does this cable modem have nic too?
    Does it do this with all usb devices?
    Do you have any front panel usb ports?

    Try a different usb cable to start with.
    Check to see if any additional usb connectors are
    plugged in correctly to the MoBo.
    Check bios for all settings on usb.
    Possibly clear cmos.
