    Check the manufacturer.

    It's usually no good with USB, unless the USB is using a stndard protocol
    (the SurfBoard Cable modem does, so that is usable with a modern
    distribution).

    You can give it a shot by looking at the modules instlled and running.
    Installed:

    /sbin/lsmod | grep -u usb

    this will show you what usb device drivers you have currently running.
    Someone here will be able to tell you what they are for

    For installed modules:

    ll -r /lib/modules//kernel/drivers/usb

    Try installing these modules, if you don't think the correct ones are
    installed.

    for file in `ls *.o`
    do
    module=`basename $file ".o"`
    insmod -vv -d $module
    done

    that should *attempt* to install any modules in the current directory. E.g.
    if it sees only

    usb-core.o

    it will run

    insmod -vv -d usb-core

    The "-vv -d" will give you lots of information which may be able to help you
    find the problem
