    ADSL\Cable Router

    Is there a wireless router out there with both ADSL and WAN (cable) connectivity built in?
    Just trying to answer a question and I'm pretty sure there used to be some out there!

    You're right, there are a few but most companies have seperate devices. I think there's little to no demand to have everything 'all-in-one', but it certainly confuses many people I've come across!

    Would this be one?

    Belkin N Wireless ADSL Modem with Built-in Wireles - Misco.co.uk

    It has ADSL + 4 Ethernet Ports + Wireless

    The keywords you're looking for are Radio-Ethernet which is a special RJ-45 port which connects a cable modem to the router. You'd then just have 4 standard RJ-45 ports for workstations/printers etc...

    A WAN port is an RJ-11 connection (phone cable) which is used for modems and in this case it has a built in DSL modem which would connect directly into a microfilter.

    I would have to second the Draytek Products they have 4 or 5 models with Dual WAN support.
    Easy to setup and manage and by far the simplest site to site vpn setup I have ever used.
    The 2820 models simply rock... Vigor Router Comparison Chart

    will most likely get flamed for this one but ah well

    what you could do is just get an adsl or adsl 2 plus modem that converts telephone into RJ45 ( ethernet ) and then just get a cable router
