I have a USB ADSL modem. I recently bought Linksys wireless-g router. Since linksys has only ethernet port, I am looking forward to suggestions to connect them. I ruled out USB-Ethernet converter since the USB connected to ADSL modem appears to be type B port. Please let me know what I need to do.
First choice would be to demand a 'real' modem with rj45 connector.
If that is not possible, next choice would be to get a used computer, anything that is new enough to support usb, and make yourself a linux router (very easy to do) plug the linux NIC into the wireless router and away you go. I can give you the instructions if you want to pursue that rout.
If you Google for "ethernet to USB" all you will find are adapters the plug into a USB port of a laptop and present an ethernet port for you to patch into your network. Those adapters are USB "clients" that need a "server" (your laptop).
What you are asking for is an adapter that emulates your laptop's USB port that you can plug your DSL modem into.
Basicaly this is what a print server does. You connect an USB printer into one end and an ethernet cable in the other end.
BUT....it only works for printers - at least the few print servers that I have tried. I suspect they have a USB engine embedded with pre-loaded printer drivers. It would be cool if you could connect a USB web cam.
