    I am wanting to use a Linksys BEFW11S4 ADSL wireless HUB/Router. It also requires that I have an ADSL modem. The problem is that I can only find USB modems.
    Is there a manufacturer that produces ADSL modems with a Ethernet connector, or a piece of hardware which will take the USB B (flat connector) from the USB Modem and output to an RJ45 Ethernet connector. I can only find things that go the other way.

    Cisco makes a couple adsl modems that have ethernet connections. I use one that has been discontunied (sp), Cisco 678, but I'm sure they have new ones out, might try there.

    GT, I think you will find that the USB cable is an optional conversion...you don't have to use it. On the specs page the pic says optional. :)

    GraLk. :D

    SlySpinglefinge: I want that cable to plug into the router I am going to get not the back of my PC.

    Catch. Thanks I will surf out SMC.

    GraLK, What do you mean, are you saying that most/some USB ADSL modems also have an ethernet port on them as well. Why is it never quoted in the specs?
