I have 2 cisco routers:

- cisco 800 series
- cisco 837

They both have rj45 connections on them saying ADSL, but they are smaller than the normal network cable rj45.

Currently ive got internet and a phone line from the same company.  does this mean I could by one of those DUAL connectors that plug into the phone socket and connect my router to it?

Im not sure of the scenario if I can I can actually do it.

- Im thinking the dual connector plugs into the wall phone socket
- the phone plugs into this dual connector
- my router cable plugs also into the dual connector and the other end into the router.
- my router also has console port to configure router as normal
- my router also has 4 ethernet ports for other pc's for example.

Will this work?

This router is used to connect to an ADSL service. If you have ADSL service from your provider, you can use one of these routers.

does the above mean it would need to dial into the network although I have broadband and no dial up.

My modem is connected directly to my ISP
i have a DLink 604 router which is connected to my modem to provide extra ports for other pc's
