Phone ist not an ethernet,
Therefore there is no way to connect.

Hi herrenax,

it's definitly not a network port.
But it's very probably a ISDN-interface or line connector of a internal analog phone-modem.
So You need to buy a ethernet card and plug them in a free PCI-slot.
May be, You should removing the unnecessary old interface or modem, to get a free slot.
