why can't i connect my linksys router to my comcast modem and gateway computer?

my cable connections are not ethernet, they r usb. the steps in the Linksys cd setup do not apply to my connections. the second step is to disconnect my ethernet from my gateway comp. and put into the internet whole on the router. there is no ethernet cable connection to my gateway. there is only a usb plugged into my modem and it connects to by gateway via a usb plug.

    your problem is you are using usb, unplug the usb cord and put in a drawr and dont use it, go get an ethernet jumper and attach it between the modem and the router and a ethernet jumper between your router and computer, and dont let me hear you mention usb and internet in the same breath again. just kidding.
    your router must have an ethernet connection on it as well as the usb, you will need to use that insted of the usb cable.
    everything needs to be connected with ethernet jumpers.

    Good Luck
