Hi

You need an External Ethernet (what you call RJ-45) Modem to do it
correctly.

You can try to convince your ISP to exchange your modem, or you can buy your
own.

If it is a Cable Internet Connection you can find an Ethernet Cable Modem in
most computer Mega Stores.

If it is a DSL Connection it is a little harder to find Ethernet Modem on
the free market.

This is one reliable source:

trying to work out what you are asking here.

if you get a wireless router & a wireless card for your PC.
you would plug the CM into the WAN socket on the router.
link to it by wireless for the PC.
else you could go via a ethernet cbale from router to pc, so then you would
need a network socket, yes.

however, i see then there being no benefit of having the router at all,
other than getting rid of the USB CM link, which is not a bad idea as far as
loading on the processor goes.

well i tried.
