    This is a technical question, not a Linux programming question. It would be much better asked at a Linux forum.
    What's wrong with the ethernet option, anyway?
    Does your kernel support USB network devices? This specific device?

    For using router through USB in most cases the specific drivers should be installed

    Well that's VAGUE

    What about something useful like make and model?

    What about something else useful like which OS / Distro / patch level you have?

    Did you check the manufacturer's FAQ ?
