I recently was given a Netgear wireless router. I had the intent of
setting up a wireless network in our small office. However we have a
wireless modem for connection to our ISP. They use a Lucent Orinoco
USB modem. So the connection of our modem is actually USB.

Can a USB modem be connected to an Ethernet Wireless Router? Does
using a USB-Ethernet converter work? I have read conflicting opinions
on this under Google groups and i would like clarification. is the
Netgear Wireless Router i have useless?

Thanks in advance.
