Snort and ADSL

Hi list.
I have a Netscreen 5GT ADSL FW at my home with two interfaces - inside and outside. I do have a basic set of IDS sigs on the Netscreen but I would like to set up a Snort sensor outside the Firewall to look at unblocked alerts. However, I only have an RJ11 telephone cable to my ADSL port on the Netscreen and no where to plug in a Snort sensor. I could plug it in on the inside but I miss a lot of the traffic already dropped. I know that some SOHO Firewalls like the Linksys ones let you run Snort on the box itself but this isn't an option for me. Could anyone suggest a feasible solution?
