I have DSL which comes into my house through the phone line. I then have a modem that it plugs into which handles connecting to the remote ISP. The modem has then several eithernet ports that can be used for the network.
I would like to know if I can get rid of the modem and try to convert the phone line signal into an Ethernet signal that I can use to plug into my DD-WRT equipped router. I'm pretty sure the router can handle the basic configuration needed to talk to the ISP's server itself.
So is this possible - or do I just have to stick with the router sitting behind that cheap modem?
