connecting a usb modem to a router

  mickfool 00:07 07 Dec 2007

my modem connects to my pc via usb, but my belkin g wireless router requires a phonelike cable from the modem. There is an ethernet connection port in the back of my pc and I have several spare cables. How do I connect the modem to the router? Do I need a differant router or am I missing a trick?
