DSL Modem: How to Record Phone Calls from DSL Input

I'm currently using Sourceforge Audacity to record phone calls through a Radio Shack 3-port device that connects from my cell (or cordless) headphone sub-mini jack to the sound card microphone input on the ASUS 8N-SLI motherboard of my Windows XP system.

I would like to record phone calls directly from the DSL modem which is a 2-Wire modem and SBC DSL service provider. This has wireless capability, but I am using a direct cable connected from the modem to an ethernet card. The phone line comes from a standard wall jack and routes through a line splitter. One line goes to the DSL modem input, the other goes to the phone.

. . . . Is there a way to record directly from the ethernet card through which the DSL input is routed ? . . . .

Audacity shows several line inputs:
:: Phone Line, Microphone, Line In, CD Player, AUX, Stereo Mix, Mono Mix
  -> None of these provides recording capability from the phone line without an external input to the sound card.

There are lot of softwares and shareware available to record telephone conversation on your PC. A simple google search would give you lots of list.

A word of caution, many of those available applications work with VOIP phones, and may not work with ISDN, DSL line. So check before you buy / try. Also some applications requires normal modem to tap the signals.

You cannot record phone calls directly through your DSL modem, you must have an adapter to connect your phone line to your sound card.
