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...

For the record, I have never seen a dsl modem that would allow one computer to be connected via usb and another via network.

i've never heard of the jetspeed modem, and whether its USB port can be used under Linux depends entirely on a driver being available. on your linux machine, plug the modem into the USB port, and from a console window as root, issue 'lsusb' and post back the results - could do with seeing if the modem uses a common chipset...

if not, then I think you'll be stuck with using the ethernet port. is there any reason why you couldn't add a second ethernet card to your machine? it would be a cheap and easy way round your problem (assuming it's a desktop machine)...

I will be posting a really big reply. Sorry for that.

Output of lsusb was :

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bf1:8005 Intracom S.A.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Output of lsusb -v was ( I only write down Device 003 which is for my router, others are excluded for convenience) :

So I see it identifies my USB device . Any ideas ?
