Something screwy's going on with my wireless modem and ethernet card, and at this point I'm not exactly sure what the problem is. I do have a feeling however that my ethernet card is dead. My wireless modem has a usb slot, and I know you can use usb instead of a network adapter, but what all does it involve? I have the correct usb cable, but I know it's not as easy as just hooking it up. Wouldn't I need software for the modem or something along that line?

You have to configure the router to use the USB interface instead of Ethernet from the configuration page. Just go out and get another Ethernet card, if it is not the problem return it.
