As the USB modem only has a USB port, and one port for the phone line. So basically, am I screwed?
Thanks a lot to anyone who can help.

Ok, yes, you can purchase a network adapter and insert it into the computer. You could also consider a USB to LAN adapter. If you go this route, then you are back to having to have the first machine on for the other to connect.
I've got 2 computers. My main one has 6 USB ports but I don't think it has an ethernet port, can an ethernet port be bought though?
Well, the WAN port could also be labeled by "Internet".
The router has 5 ports, by WAN what do you mean?
Sorry to say, IF THE ONLY CONNECTOR THAT YOUR MODEM HAS IS USB, you will either:
And really all I want this router for is so that I can go on the internet without having to turn the other computer on, which currently has the modem. And also PS2 online play.
