You can setup internet connection sharing on your computer and bridge the modem to your Ethernet port.. and then plug the Ethernet cable from your Ethernet port to the wireless routers "internet" port.

Netgear has a variety of wireless routers that include the DSL  modem.

Here is a link to one of their low end options:

no Ethernet on a dsl modem? Lame! Call your service provider and tell them to give you a real modem. Or just buy a Netgear dsl modem / router like vince said.

yes no ethernet port on a dsl modem, guys what about if i use a RJ-45 connector and with the help of crimp network tools, i make phone line cable pair into that RJ-45 and then connect this last one in the WAN port of the router?? it looks to me logical what you think

That would not work because ethernet is not the same protocol as DSL

If you bought the netgear ADSL router with wireless it would probably be similar cost as buying the D-link wireless router and you would have something that works.

no not going to work. A regular router will not be able to do anything with the signal because it is a router, not a dsl modem.

Telling ya call your DSL service provider and have them send you a real modem with an Ethernet port. I wouldn't let my provider send me a usb modem that can only support one PC connection and no wireless.  Who is your service provider? AOL? Haha. No offence but basically you were provided with a device that greatly handicaps your service in this day and age. I wouldn't go spend money on a dsl / router and let that fly. You already bought a router and that's all you should have to do. Call them up!
