USB Network Support?

I have Three computers on my LAN.  The one I'm on right now is my test 
bed and it is running Ubuntu 7.10.  It is connected to my 2Wire 
Router/modem, mod. 1000SW via NIC thru a Cat5e.  This is unit number 2.  
Unit number 3 is running on WindowsXP connected to the 2Wire via a Home 
Phone Network Adapter that plugs to the computer in the USB ports. 

Unit number 1 is a problem.  It is presently on a dual boot system with 
Kubuntu and Windows XP.  Unit number one is connected to the 2Wire via 
the only Usb port on the 1000SW 2Wire modem/ router.  If I boot the unit 
#1in Windows XP all three computers connect to the internet, at the same 
time, and they communicate via the LAN.  If I boot unit #1 in Kubuntu, 
it will not communicate with any other device.

The lsusb results are;

First check with the 2Wire plugged in;

I went first to the Ubuntu list and everyone centered on the device not 
being suitable for the task I wish to accomplish but ith the system 
working perfectly with computer #1 booted in Windows I just fail to see 
that as a valid statement.  And when I was asked to post the lsusb 
results everyone just fell silent.  Please help, I do not want to 
operate Windows any more.
