buy a usb hub off ebay or somewhere local... they can't be more than 10-20 bucks if you have the money... and then you can plug in like 4-8 or more appliances... as for your problem it sounds like either drivers or a bad usb port which would only be replacable with a new motherboard.

SURFboard modems are really dodgy when plugged in via USB, I've got one and I know from experience. Try connecting it through a 10/100 Ethernet card (NIC) instead.

That can't be helping either
If you can scrape together enough pennies to get XP, get that.
