Are you saying that on the network with the USB modem, you are connected to the modem with a USB cable AND a CAT-5 network cable? If so, you only need one or the other (the network cable is the best option).

....the internet connection through the LAN is OK too.. The only problem is with the USB modem connection. As I said I have tested the USB modem with another PC and it was all right.

Gotcha, I thought you meant you had a LAN at work and at home had LAN and USB going at the same time.

What you might want to try is this. Right-click on "My Network Places" on the desktop and select properties. Make sure there are no bridged connections listed. I had a PC add a connection automagically once a while back that really screwed with things. The issues sound similar to what you're describing. If there are no bridged connections listed, then I'm out of ideas for the moment.

One more thing...have you tried using a LAN line at home?
