    Usually a straight cable from the WAN side of the router..to whatever "bridge" you have for your ISP...DSL modem, cable modem, subscriber module if wireless ISP, T-1 CSU/DSU, etc.

    You then configure the WAN interface of your router...to whatever specs your ISP requires. Example...PPPoE username/password for most DSL types, or DHCP from bridged DSL or cable, static entries for some static DSL, cable, T-1, etc.
