As Peter said: forget USB.

Dunno, perhaps USB works with the setup program on CD for windows,
but still (especially in Linux) ethernet is much, much easier to use
and 1000% more versatile.
So get yourself a $5 100Mb card, set its address to e.g.
192.168.1.10, netmask 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.1.254 (the
default address of the ST536i, see your manual).
Point a browser to that address and change what you want, like
"Always On" and login-name and password for your provider.
