    As a general rule, the answer is no, only one modem can be on a DSL. If you need wireless, you will have to get a wireless router that will be fed by your modem. This should give you at leaset 4 wired ports and probably up to 128 wireless ports. If you try to coonnect 2 modems to the DSL line, you will probably not sync up on wither of them.
