RJ11 is the typical incoming connection for a DSL modem.

Your provider provides an RJ45 connection. What is the actual signal type coming out of that RJ45? An ethernet type signal, or a DSL type signal?

rj45 is the standard from your modem to your router and from your router to your pcs, consoles etc. rj11 is the input from your provider to your modem if it's dsl. Cable is the input from your provider to your modem if it is of course cable. The modem is the converter. Here's a schematic:

So in theory I don't see the need for an additional converter if I am understanding you correctly. Hope this helps!
So in the pic above the "phone line" would be your rj11, the ethernet cable would be your rj45s. Makes sense? Let me know if there's confusion. Take care!

Thanks,

Justin S.
