Have Comcast cable modem with USB port for connecting to Dell Windows XP PC. PC only has USB and regular phone outlets, no Ethernet outlet. Bought Linksys WRT54G, that needs ethernet cable between Wireless Router and PC and Cable modem.

Do I need to put an ethernet card into the PC? How about the Cable Modem? Or can I find a wireless router that accepts all USB connections?

Cable Modems hooks up to your Router thru CAT5 cable..then you'd need to purchase a ethernet card for your PC. PC hooks up to your Router.

looks something like this

Comcast <==>Your Cable Modem<==>Router<==> Your PCs
