 RJ11 to RJ45
I have a USR MaxG wireless router that has one inbound RJ45 port. My service provider provides an RJ11 DSL interface. I need to either convert the RJ11 from the wall jack into an RJ45 for the MaxG or get a new router from the service provider. Can I get such a converter and what would be a good brand available in the UAE?

Dear Sagar,
You are either confused about what a router does or are using the wrong terminology.

If you have a "router" then it will not connect to a DSL line directly, you would need a DSL modem between the DSL line and the router (this would be the conversion.
If you have a combination DSL modem/router then there should be a connection point marked for the DSL line.

Please repost with the model number of the US Robotics device you have and we can assist you better. The I can look up the model number and give you more pointed instruction, without the model number I can only guess which device you actually have.
