I found an instruction sheet on installing a usb modem (AC595U). It's first instruction is: "sudo modprobe -r usbserial" I became concerned that that -r stood for remove and the computer I'm doing it to is using a usb mouse.
The next command is: "sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=[vendorID] product=[prodID] "
I'm also wondering if these above commands would be useful in getting other USB devices working?
Everybody needs to believe in something,
I believe I'll have another beer!
removes the kernel module (it doesn't reload it: see "man modprobe"), but this doesn't affect input devices nor storage devices.
The second command you posted load again the module passing to it some different options, required by your modem.
