    accessing the internet

    My router also comes with the ethernet option as well as the usb. If I use the ethernet , everyhing is fine. But., if i use the USB option , the router is not even getting detected. What exactly should i do to make this device work?

    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?
    All the buzzt!

    For using router through USB in most cases the specific drivers should be installed
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    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 ?
