    Want to use USB for my dsl modem


    I have recently bought the jetspeed520 adsl router and i want to use USB to connect it to my PC ( not ethernet ) under suse9.2 . I have googled to many sites and searched in many forums but i cant find something helpful. The manual has no reference to linux setup. I have setup successfully the router through ethernet in the past , but right now i need to connect it through USB, because the ethernet is reserved by another PC .

    Please dont reply me asking why i dont use ethernet or that I should buy a hub/switch. Any help will be appreciated. Thanx in advance...

    well it can usualy be done though if the other machine is a windows box you will have an easier time getting the usb to work with a win box! than with a linux box though it can be done but we need
    or you can simply get a ether hub or switch with more ports on it for ethernet cables

    You first port of call would be to plug it in and see what happens. Hotplug should do something dmesg it and have a look.

    Have you googled for info on your hardware with linux?
