    Hello and Welcome!

    In order to connect to the internet via USB, you'll need to install the drivers for the modem. You should be able to obtain those drivers from your ISP. Just make sure that they aren't only for Windows.

    You could try going to the modem manufacturer website to see if there is a Linux driver available to download. Other than that, I would suggest looking into installing a network card.

    Honestly, and I hate to say it, those are pretty much your only two options. You'll either have to get a NIC for your computer or find a way to obtain some USB drivers for your modem. And unless zebronic happens to provide them you're pretty much out of luck on this one.
