usb_modeswitch. They expose a network interface with default route. Clearly, this only makes sense if you intend to use your box as a firewall/router. Careful though - these already do NAT, do not support reverse NAT/port forwarding and therefore come with a box of limitations. Also, those USB modems usually don't even come close to the dual radio bandwidth rates that the Archer or B535 get to.
