    Hmm, well, I guess it depends on the particular device. I can connect External USB HD's and USB flash drives but let us know what you want to connect and we can hopefully give you better advice.

    I'm not aware of any way to connect a USB modem to an iPad, AFAIK you can only use a wifi connection or the built-in cellular connection (if you have a cellular iPad).

    You CAN connect a USB "modem" (AKA "Surfstick") using the same iUSBPort Gabriel1 uses to connect his external Hard Drive. At least this is what the user manual says...
