Hi guys, I just got a wireless router by Linksys, its a wireless G router that plugs into your modem. Well heres the problem, It says to plug in the Ethernet card from the modem to your computer, the only problem is I have a Arris modem that plugs into the internet through a USB. What do I do?? I dont know what to do! Does this mean I have to get a new Network card that supports Ethernet???

All network cards support Ethernet...

Just unplug your USB modem, hook the router up to your network card port on the rear of your PC (it uses an RJ45 connector), then all you need to do is set up your connection via the router control panel.

Your PC may have onboard ethernet. If not, Ethernet NICs are around $5 each, with RJ45 cable weighing in at between around $5 and $20, depending on length.
