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
