the SpeedTouch 330 is a usb modem and requires that you upload its
firmware on power up. The SpeedTouch drivers (bsd/linux/windoze) do
that for you.

i am not sure if you can use the SpeedTouch modems directly connected to
a router, since the router won't know anything about uploading a firmware
to the modem.
