Can I network with this modem?

I've got a BT VOyager 100 USB ASDL modem which plugs into my computer via a USB port. Theres no external power supply as it is powered by the PC itself.

Because of this there is no RJ45 cable into my PC, so can I network via a router with this modem, or will I have to buy a new built in ASDL modem/router? The modem only has a slot for the phone line and then a usb cable into my PC. Any ideas if i can network with this modem?

there are routers that you place after the modem and connect to the pc. not up on adsl networking, so someone else should of more use to you than me.

As far as I know there are no usb routers, so you will need an ASDL modem/router. There are advantages with these like built in firewalls so look arround.
