I need to get my router on our POTS line to have an engineer remote in and configure.  Anyone know the best way to do this?  Router came with a modem cable, I'm going to have to scrounge around and try to find an external modem if that the only way

I think I am a bit confused. I researched your router, and it appears that the version that has RJ11 ports on it has an xDSL module. I don't think that is for dialing/picking up POTS phone calls. I may be off base, but are you sure you have the right equipment? And do you mean to have your engineer remote log in to your router? or a server on your network?

I was asked by the engineers to "connect the router to my POTS line", I also noticed that there is a DSL module available for the router which I do not have, but they sent me the router, so I assume they know what they are talking about.  I've asked them and they haven't got back to me as of yet....

hmmmm.... I would assume they mean to connect the pots line to the xDSL port, if it has it. I would also be under the assumption they have the matching equipment on their side to interface with your box. I would wait until they get back to you :D

It needs to be connected to an external modem via the AUX port

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
