No. The 1600's have serial, 56k CSU, ISDN and T1 ports but no Cable or DSL support.

You could use a 1600 with 2 ethernet ports (1605R) inside of your cable or DSL modem.

Come off of the broadband modem's ethernet port into the first ethernet port of the 1605R. The second ethernet port of the 1605R would connect to either a switch or hub.

But then again, what are trying to accomplish? Do you have an existing broadband modem? Are you trying to replace it? Are you trying to provide internet access to multiple PC's?

from my adsl i have a 10 base t from that i would go to my 10 base t port on my router
and i have female RJ45 that says consol from that i go to my switch/hub and then from switch/hub
to my pc's is that right.

All iam trying to do is have a router setup so my server/pc's go through my router to my adsl or through my switch/hub router adsl.
Thanks Davy

Do you presently have a 1600 or are you getting one? If you already have one, which model do you have?

Your proposed setup will work. You just need a router with 2 ports. If you don't have a router or don't have the correct one, I suggest something like a Linksys broadband router.

The basic model:

With a built-in 4 port switch:

With a built-in 8 port switch:
