Maybe recompilig the kernel would do the trick, if you'd include support for you router. Or some other solution I don't know of.

so your computer connects to the router via USB ???

what does the command "lsusb" say about your USB router ?
did the kernel assign the USB port an Ethernet id (eth#) ???
what does "dmesg | grep eth" say ?
