A T1 line is a dedicated connection to an Internet backbone router. Typically a T1 line is for major businesses and school campuses. A T1 line is capable of handling 637 simultaneous VOIP connections with full-duplex connection.
How many computers do you intend to have connected to this network? Even a fractal T1 is very expensive. A full T1 connection can cost nearly 25K per month usage. A T1 line will need to be installed by your ISP provider and this too will cost a significant amount of money and it depends on how close your network connection will be in relation to the main network trunk-line.
If you trying to connect a T1 line to a Belkin 54g wireless router, you are way out of your league. I have worked for several networking firms in the Atlanta, GA area and we never had more than a fractal T1. Most small to midsized networks (up to 100) users can be accommodated with using a DSL or Cable Internet connection with a dedicated firewall and router/switch to handle the network traffic. Unless you are willing to pay for a T1 fiber optic line to be run from the main trunk line to your place of business or home, you will be fine with a high speed cable internet connection from an ISP provider like Comcast of Qwest here in the US. Fiber still has an installation cost of about $10,000USD per 1000 feet.
Hope this helps to clarify your problem.
