Hi guys, right now I am using a billion 7800N and I bought a Asus RT N66U and decided to set it up today. As i was setting it up, I got the ADSL/DSL cable in which came from an ADSL Splitter for my landline + router and took it out of the 7800N (I'm not sure if it's called ADSL/DSL but on the 7800N it was labeled DSL port) and I noticed there was no port for ADSL in the N66U, there were only 4 ethernet ports and 1 wan port.

I'm not quite sure what to do as I don't really understand networking and routers/modems etc. Do I need to buy something else like a ADSL line to Ethernet converter or something? Why does my 7800N have a ADSL DSL line but the N66U doesn't?
If it helps, I am in Sydney Australia with TPG.

Thanks for your help guys.

you 7800 has a DSL modem build-in and the Asus does not.

what's wrong with the 7800?

you have three options:

1) buy a DSL modem that will work with you ISP and connect the ASUS to it
2) configure the 7800 to work in bridge mode which makes it work like a mode only and connect the WAN port of the ASUS to one of the four ports on the 7800. your ISP should be able to help you with this
3) configure the ASUS to work as an AP (access point) and connect it to the 7800
