I think so, my router has 4 ethernet ports, but no usb port....so yeah possibly, but I'm sure someone with more knowledge than me can verify that for you.

Jules is right,

Ethernet is usually faster as the network interface card usually deals with all the processing whereas a USB port requires the computer to deal with the processing instead..

I do stand to be corrected though.
