Your question is that you want to use a cellular type modem with your router via usb?

You need a very special router to be able to do that. Most routers only support storage devices via USB. Just because it has a USB port does not mean it will support all devices. Most those modems are not even supported on PC without the vendors special drivers.

john is right the usb port on the side of your modem is for a storage device or printer at best, no modems or anything else for tha matter. To connect a modem to that port would mean that the device would need to know what is connected. For that to happen the router would need to install a driver for the usb device connected. So since installing a driver on the router is not possible it simply can't be done wheather you are in a hurry or not!
