Dear Gokul,

I have not seen a way to connect a DSL modem with a USB port only to a router. The only solution I can think of is to have your DSL provider exchange the modem with one that has an Ethernet port that would then connect to your router via the 'uplink' port. (They may also have available a combination DSL modem/router with wireless option) The router would connect to the computer via it's ethernet port (AKA NIC).
