I'm trying to help my friend.

The basic situation is this:

His only source of internet for his office is shared with another party. It is a DSL line. There is a Verizon DSL modem that goes to a physical firewall / router and then there's CAT5 serving the other party from that router.

My friend has no access to the existing router / firewall settings and it is really impossible to work with the other party. So is it possible to split the connection before their router so that my friend can have his own separate firewall and router?

Thanks

If they pay for a block of static IP's yes. Verizon modem to switch, then switch to each router each with one of the static IP's. Otherwise with the the connection from the existing router you can plug into the WAN of another router which will create a separate network, but if you have to do any port forwarding it won't work.
