I have an Imac running 10.4 and a Safecom SWART2-54125 modem router. I want to use the USB port on the modem for internet connectivity as the LAN port on the Mac is used for another network. There are no Mac USB drivers for the above modem. Any idea's how I would connect this device?

You should nit need any drivers, the router should be configured with a web browser

I can do that via ethernet but I have to use the usb connection! Will the Mac connect to the modem via USB without drivers?
