Hi Phil. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
Please do not plug your phone line into an ethernet port as that will not work.
Can I ask which company provides your service?
Return the router to Fry's and tell them you need
this model: http://www.frys.com/product/8532819?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG
Review the picture of the back of the router. It has the RJ11 port you need
on the back of the router on the right-hand side.
