Routers with built-in modems you can only have one per phone line, otherwise none of them will connect.
Routers in a stand-alone network you can have in theory as many as you want, though why is another question altogether.

Hi Dsenette, I have a adsl router that is connected to my telephone line. I have a pci card in my computer that talks to the router, thats how my computers gets on to the internet wirelessly. My second computer also has a pci card, enabling both computers to be on line at the same time. My question is can I configure computer 2 via the pci card to talk to a second router that I can connect to my telephone line ie both routers connected to the same telphone line, I don't think that is is possible, but I was told tha it is? What do you think?
nick i edited this just so that all of that wasn't in the quote so it would be easier to read

I was told that it was possible to connect a (what I refer to as an adsl router )which has a lead comming out of the back that I connect to my single phone socket. I thought that you could only connect 1 router per exchange telephone line, the reason for the question, I have 2 routers and 2 computers in differnet parts of the house that are connected wirelessly, if I could have had 2 routers on the same telephone line it would have been better in as much as I wouldn't be so dependent on signal strength adn quailty.
edited again for readability....nick...when quoting something..make sure that the text taht you don't want quoted is after the "/quote] thing...
