Can i connect usb port to printer port for network printing

No. The USB port on your cable modem is intended to be used only for connecting a pc to the network. Sorry for the bad news.
For network printing you can use a dedicated print server like Edimax ps-1206u, a great device that make even old printers to get on the network via USB and Ethernet ports it haves

Window7 crache connecting usb fax modem

I expect it is a problem with your USB Driver, Get an updated driver for your USB slots. (either from motherboard manufacturer or USB manufacturer if it is a USB "card")
Even default or old drivers might work Try a few different USB drivers - a new one, the reccomended one, the original one...
(good idea is to use a ps/2 mouse and keyboard since your usb will be going on and off while you're working, it can be hard to click YES when you're keyboard AND mouse aren't working ;-)
if it still dont work...
Can you set any of your USB slots to work in USB 1.0 instead of 2.0, there could be an option in bios, maybe it will run the "OLD" modem in an OLD mode?

Ethernet Port seems to be a failure, but the USB works fine

I managed to fix the problem manually using a computer kit I had.
The problem was the Ethernet port on the modem was messed up
you should check if the small wires are on the back are all facing towards the top if not you should try to fix its actually pretty easy
no need to pay for a repair :D
