=======================================================

The Problems:

1) I don't know how to use usb_modeswitch manually, to make that usb to work.
2) The USB device is not working(?) as the way it supposed to.

And thanks for the help.

It appear to be working, looks like all you need is to set the connection with the router.

I have been to that page before(that's the first page that comes up when you google that), and didn't help me out much. I don't think I have the latest version, but I don't think that will change anything.
