I'm not explicitly familiar with your situation, but are you saying that the source of your broadband is a USB device? If so, you need an always-on computer effectively to be your router. Assuming this device shows up in your network settings, you can turn on internet sharing and tell your computer to share this connection over ethernet. Connect this to one of the LAN ports on your linksys, and turn OFF the DHCP server on the linksys, as your host computer will become your DHCP server and router. The linksys will only be a switch/bridge.

I guess you are trying to share your access from a cellular broadband connection. You may want to find out if connection sharing is allowed in your service agreement.

Though unless you are out in the country where other services are available. Why don't you go for a likely cheaper and faster land connection with a higher data usage cap?

Otherwise Detrius' suggestion should work.

If I understand it, you are trying to do this:

Internet --> USB Modem Stick --> Router --> Mac(s)

This would probably be the best solution. It would replace your Linksys router. These devices are designed specifically for what you are trying to do.

This is a similar product, but it doesn't have any wired ethernet ports.

Netgear also makes a wireless router with a USB port for a 3G modem but I haven't heard great things about that one. Here is the link to the Netgear one, but I personally wouldn't buy it.
