Called firewire to usb cable.
or use an adapter.

then normal usb to usb cable.
Modem/wifi router gets power supply from the power adapter ( (9V 1Amp or 12V 1 Amp usually ).
Rarely USB port is used for BB connection now
Computer USB Port Power supply usually 5V 1 Amp.

Better use ethernet (your modem has 4) or WiFi unless you have a specific reason to use USB port.

Thanks Essbebe.

Now why it is not recommended. The sole reason is to draw power from laptop when there is a power cut. I dont have a UPS.

Thanks
