It looks like that modem also has an Ethernet port. Can't you just connect it with a network cable? That should always work.

Do you mean he connects to his router using USB? If so, this should be supported and will be configured as USB0, not eth0.

 No possibility to connect through ethernet? It's the most standards compliant method.

He is trying to use a cable with USB connectors at both ends, one end into a computer USB , the other end into the modem USB.  The modem's ethernet output goes to his router.  I just noticed that there are 3-4 extra ethernet connections on the router.  His household has 3-4 computers going.  I guess he can try one of the open ethernet plugs on the router.  Thanks.
