Routers for internal or USB DSL

By frazzled ·
Are there any home network wireless routers available for internal or USB DSL modems? I've tried both LinkSys and Netgear but neither support non-ethernet modems.

With your configuration, you do not need a router.
Connect your PCs together using a hub or switch.

To share the internet connection, you need to select a PC to be your internet connection host.

Install the DSL connection to that PC.

Enable Internet Connection Sharing on the host PC.
Create the client install floppy on the host when you enable ISC.

Then, take the client disk to each PC that you wish to share the DSL connection, and configure the PC.
