Can fa ports on 877 also function as WAN?

I'm looking at purchasing a Cisco 877w for the built-in ADSL modem and wireless functionality. However, I wish to know whether it can also function in a cable DSL scenario by utilising one of the ethernet ports as a WAN port, i.e. like an 871?

Otherwise, I may consider using an 871 with a separate ADSL modem instead. This would allow me to change DSL services in future without purchasing a new router.

Any response is appreciated. Cheers.

Hi

The four port managed switch wont offer the features which u can avail with the normal WAN(ethernet) port but yes u can configure up a SVI (L3 VLAN) configured with the ip provided by the SP.

but u hve got the limitation of 4 Vlans and that too with the Adv IP Services ios code..
