I have Verizon DSL with a modem 1600.  I just got a new Samsung 650 LCD TV - this TV has the capability of connecting to the internet.  I don't have the need for a wireless router.  Is it possible to get a modem from Verizon that has TWO ethernet outputs on the back or can the signal be split and if so, where do you get an ethernet splitter?

You could get a hub or a switch, to expand the number of ethernet ports.

There are routers that Verizon provides that have more than one LAN port.
