I would say yes but i have not tested it personaly, but what i know about routers it should work with. Cable internet and dsl are exactly the same thing. The only difference is how its delivered to your house and the speed of it.
DSL tands for "Digital Subscriber Line." It is medium for transferring
data over regular phone lines and can be used to connect to the Internet
cable the same thing except it is internet though the cable line. you u run the out of your
you probably wont even have to change any settings on it either. the line out of the back of your cable modem will plug into the same spot the old cable ran to when you just had dsl.
if this has been helpful please mark it has fixya. also please rate me, and if you have found it very helpful or informative please recommend me.
Comcast will not support that kind of modem. Comcast is a Cable ISP thus the ADSL modem won't work with them because ADSL modem is for DSL providers. Cable Company uses different protocol than DSL. But Comcast will provide you the cable modem if you subscribe to them.
Hi Susie With related to your particular issue it seems like that your broadband modem is not configured for the router. There are basically 2 types of connection. DSL and Cable modem. Verizon, ATT are DSL and comcast other providers give you a normal cable broadband connection. If its comcast make sure the cable from the comcast modem is going to the internet port in the linksys router and also make sure that there is a system connection the linksys router and the cable from the system goes to any of LAN 1, 2, 3 and 4 ports. Then reset your cable modem by using a pin and inserting to the reset hole in the modem. You could use the same step to reset your linksys router as well .If its a verizon or dsl connection you need to put normally your username and password in the router page. here is the link to how to configure linksys for your internet modem. Here is a video as well on it? http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=vSAXMO7aNzg http://tinyurl.com/5tqqhl
Also post the linksys router model. your ISP modem model number and also information on how many systems are wired to the router and wireless and let me know if you need more help.
Cable modem or DSL? If cable modem without phone service, modem power has to be unplugged 2 minutes before the router is connected in order to release the mac address from memory. If cable modem with phone service, same thing applies, but battery backup must also be disconnected. DSL modem may require PPPoE setup into router.
you cant use a cable modem and a dsl modem at the same time as its a dsl dialler and a router and a cable modem works differently, all the settings wont match, you will have to purchase a seperate router or cable modem/router
