Usually one can only use either the LAN or USB connection. The USB connection is made available in case the user's computer doesn't have a network card.

You have to install drivers of the device from the included CD or any other media.
But LAN connection is faster as compared to USB.

Use the LAN connector, no need for drivers so it uses less resources and is also faster.
I also don't think you can use both USB and LAN at the same time, you can use one or the other.

how can i use usb
Read the users manual. The USB port is at least intended for configuration. The manual doesn't explicitely mention, that the USB port provides a network connection. I guess, the most simple way is to install the USB driver and check, if it shows up as a network interface. Some points in the users manual suggests, that it should be possible, also simultaneous with LAN, see the VLAN paragraph.

there are routers that have a USB port used for printer sharing. i don't know exactly about ADSL modems. but if the manual does not say anything about a printer, it should be secondary internet output.

That is great, enjoy. Only USB port needs drivers be installed, otherwise modem on LAN port is (normally) detected by the OS and installed the driver itself.
