As others have mentioned, yes, it is possible, but the available
hardware is restricted if you want to use a single ADSL wireless router.
Almost the only one available is the old Linksys one. 

More modern wireless routers are out there, which do have the benefit of
more CPU power, memory, flash etc as well as 11n...
