 RJ11 to RJ45
I recently switched from DSL to cable. I have a wireless ADSL modem/router (Netopia 3347W) that I would like to continue using instead of purchasing a new wireless router. The Netopia 3347 has a RJ11 port that connected to my DSL wall jack. I'd like to now connect that RJ11 port to the RJ45 LAN port on my new cable modem. Is this possible? If so, what's the pin out for this configuration?

Dear Chris,

Sorry but these are two different types of signal and you will need a new router (I just went through the same thing at home)
