    You need a different modem, one with an ethernet port.

    best solution is to get a cable modem with ethernet ports on it. get an
    ethernet port for your computer if it doesn't have it. your connection
    to desktop will be faster then through the usb.

    Well, there is no solution that involves the existing modem and that router. :)
