 modem to wirless
I have a Motorola 5100 connected to broadband cable, this modem has usb and rj45 outlets available to computer, I bought a wireless adsl modem (netgear) which only takes input from rj11. Can I just adapt the rj45 from the cable modem to rj11 at the adsl modem input to send wireless out to home newtork?

Dear tony,

No these are two differwent type of signals and can not be adapted directly to each other, It sounds like you would need a ethernet wireless access point which would connect to the ethernet output of your broadband modem.
