Exactly.. Whether or not you could still use your modem depends on IT.. Some come with cabling to convert one to the other. Others can only work one way. The best thing to do is look up your exact model, and see what it is cabable of. From what I've heard, USB is not a good interface for broad band modems. Although it claims a bandwidth of 11mps, real life performance is degraded significantly due to weak data management and device management by USB. It is possible switching to an ethernet connection will improve peformance for you, especially given ICS.
