    Hi everyone,

    I am thinking of buying a Linksys Gateway, that is a WLAN Router with included ADSL Modem. Reading the specs, most of them seem to have a rj-11 jack to connect to the splitter. However, my splitter only has an rj-45 jack to connect to the modem. Can I still use a Linksys device, or are there adaptors from rj-45 to rj-11?

    thanks for help

    If your connection is from ADSL ISP than i think you need a spliter (Microfilter) which have RJ-11 jack.
    As you mention that the spliter has RJ-45 jack. I think that your connection belong from cable ISP.
    In the ADSL Router the RJ-11 jack is used to connect the router to the phone line and RJ-45 jack is used to connect PC to the router.
    In a cable broadband router the RJ-45 jack is used to connect the router to cable Modem and also to connect the router to the PC.
