Some router models have an available SFP port where you could plug in the fiber. As you stated you could also use a media converter. I prefer Transition, here's a link to a sample product.

Colin's right. The 3800 router has one port that's a "dual personality". All you need is the correct SFP module.

Other routers, such as the 1800 and 2800 support the HWIC-1GE. Again, all you need is the correct SFP module.
