Is there a rj-11 to f connector adapter.

Specs: Xp, .????
I have a motorola sb6121 cable modem. But my DSL modem im using is a standard RJ-11 connection from the wall, I have no coaxial (f connector jack) jack in the wall. Is there an adapter to adapt/convert the standard phone jack at the wall, to a coaxial connector so I can connect this cable modem. The seller messed up & sent the wrong modem. But if an adapter will fix the problem, that'll save me the time of a return and re shipment of the one with the rj-11 connection.
If I understand right, this sb6121 is modem for Internet service thru cable tv service.
Help me if ya can.

As far as I know, there is no adapter for that. They're wired differently and won't work.

That's what I was afraid of. The sb6121n has only been out a month or so like the original one I purchased. But I guess when I answered that I didn't want a wireless modern ... I wanted one that connected via Ethernet cable, the seller didn't hear the Ethernet part and just the cable part ... Or they claim? Anyway he shipped the version using the coaxial cable instead of Ethernet cable. Well, thx for your help, I really appreciate all your help. If you hear anything on this prior to Monday, holler at me. If I don't hear anything different, I'll return it on Monday and re- order another. The Motorola 2247n8 is suppose to be a good modem/router. Don't know which to get, the sb6121 Ethernet cable version or the 2247n8??????

The RJ11 connector plugs into a DSL Modem incorporated into the DSL Router. There is no way you can get a cable Modem to work with a telephone connection that the DSL Modem/ Router is designed for..

I just got told the same thing by motorola. They suggested the same thing I thought I was getting. The 2247 n8 modem/router. But I used cable and modem in the same sentence and got this plus a router. Things have changed since my ole commodore 84. AMARICAN AIRLINES computer school was teaching the saber system and star charts ... there was no internet and IBM RULED THE WORLD OF COMPUTERS. I don't miss those 100+ character entries and mono tasking!
Again thanks for the feedback. I was just hoping there was a way around the coxial plug and I didn't have to wait another week or two to get my home set up & running again.
