Try a different USB port. If it is the only one you have and it is going bad you may need to add a USB add on card in one of you empty pci slots, if you have one.

How do I set up Asus Chromebox M004U


My advice is always to have a router between any computer and a cable or DSL modem as that gives you an added layer of security. Having no router (and its built-in hardware firewall) is like having your front door open and inviting all the ne'er-do-wells into your home to do whatever they wish.

However to answer your question more directly, I would suggest using the Ethernet port rather than USB as it is very simple, direct, and needs no driver unlike the USB option.

USB ports not working


Method 1: Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes. After your computer scans for hardware changes, it might recognize the USB device that is connected to the USB port so that you can use the device.

To scan for hardware changes, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
  2. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
  3. In Device Manager, click your computer so that it is highlighted.
  4. Click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
  5. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.
If scanning for hardware changes fixed the problem, you are finished. If this method did not fix the problem, go to Method 2.
Method 2: Restart the computer loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If scanning for new hardware did not fix the problem, try restarting the computer. After the computer has restarted, check the USB device to see whether it is working.

If restarting the computer fixed the problem, you are finished. If this method did not fix the problem, go to Method 3.
Method 3: Disable and re-enable the USB controller loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Use Device Manager to disable and re-enable all the USB controllers. This lets the controllers recover the USB port from its unresponsive condition. The USB controllers represent the USB ports in Device Manager.

To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
  2. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
  3. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.

    Note You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.
  4. Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click Uninstall to remove it.
  5. Repeat step 4 for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers.
  6. Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.
  7. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.

Usb ports not working


This can be a problem with the driver that controls your USB ports. Your drivers can be located here. Make sure they are up to date and try again. If it doesnt remedy the problem, it may be hardware related.
