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.

well, it turns out that his computer doesn't have an ethernet slot.

I can't remember if those USB/Ethernet modems have to be connected with USB to work. If it has its own power supply, probably not.

No Ethernet port? Sounds pretty old. Anyway, you can get a PCI network card for dirt cheap, so that shouldn't be a problem. Ethernet is still your best bet.
