1. Rear USB port for USB storage devices, printers etc. Side USB port for 3G/4G Mobile Broadband USB dongle. Not sure if you can connect a PC to the rear-USB port an gain internet access.

2. No.

3. Any CAT5 cable will work.

4. Signal, as in WiFi signal, or line speed?

To improve WiFi signal you could possibly change the channel in the modem, it could be interference. Improve line quality would be to test it isolated (no phone, filter e.t.c.) and have the modem directly connected to the wall socket. Other factors include distance from the exchange and line noise / SNR.
