Cannot plug directly into the DSL modem. The modem is part of the DSL

Paraphrasing Ben Franklin:

Those who sacrifice freedom for safety, have neither.

The exact quote:

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little
temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
   Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790),
   US author, diplomat, inventor, physicist, politician, & printer
   Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
