Question Direct connection

Is there a way to plug my desktop into the phone jack so I can use my dsl without using a router? Like some kind of cable that goes from phone jack to ethernet? I think my router may be interferring with my webcaming because During a webcam chat my status showed the following:
"You are directly connected to .NET Messenger Services" , but below that, it
"You are connected to the internet through a non-UPnP IP restricted NAT.
I checked the box in my router settings that said enable UPnP, but that didn't change my status in messenger.

Send a message via MSN to j03
Default Re: Direct connection

That message is really confusing, but it means its not restricted, (Double negative = positive)
