Actuall, i had a little trouble EXACTLY(aka. mental picture) of finding out what a CSU/DSU is. Ex. if someone showed me a CSU/DSU. I do have the definition az: A device that performs protective and diagnostic functions for a telecommunications line. DSU connects a terminal to a digital line. Bottom line, any body got a link to a pic and a little better definition?

CSU/DSU - (Channel Service Units / Data Service Units) A device used to connect a router to a WAN signal carrier...as explained by Cisco. Broken-down into something you can chew:

When you are trying to connect two offices via your local carrier's WAN (like AT&T, Qwest, etc), you would connect your router to the CSU/DSU and the CSU/DSU to the line. You would do the same at the other office. Nowadays, some routers have a slot open for optionally installing an internal CSU/DSU. I have attached a picture of an external one.

Hope this helps,
