    Default Connect Modem to USB

    I am using Airtel Beetel 110TC1 modem to surf the internet and I cant surf the internet in the absence of power since the modem will work using the power .

    I am just wondering is there a way I can use this modem in the absence of power , may be by using the USB adaptor by taking the power from laptop using USB.

    Thanks in advance

    The power requirement for this modem
    Beetel 110TC1 may be 5V D.C at 1 amp.
    Power demand 5 Watts.
    or
    9V/12 V at 1 Amp max Power 12 W.
    confirm. tapping from USB port will drain the laptop battery , I feel. ( other details not known)

    I have and also used a ZYXel adsl modem
    (Prestige630)with only USB PORT.
    Power required 2.5 Watts.

    Better idea will be to use a Motorcycle Battery of 6V/12V. details if needed.
