Phone line splitter and DSL modem use?

Could I use a phone line splitter to connect to my dsl modem to run an ethernet cable to my XBox 360? Rather than having to buy the wireless adaptor and a wireless router, this would be cheaper in the meantime, if it would work.

Thanks

I don't think that would work, but you can by a cheap wired bridge (or router) to do that in the meantime and not have to buy the wireless adapter.

you may be able to....
wall to phone splitter to dsl line conditioner (do-dad with a seperate dsl and phone port) to dsl modem would work as long as the run was not tooo long (under 40 feet or so to be safe.
Also, you could go with a long run (again 30-40 feet) of cat 5 cable from your dsl modem to the xbox.
