Having moved from a house where I used an ADSL router with Orange which shared my connection wirelessly, to a Virgin Media house which now uses a Cable Modem, my question is can I plug my Cable Modem into an ethernet port in my ADSL router and still share the internet connection wirelessly? My early experiments would indicate NO! I can get the internet connection wired but nothing else subsequently plugged into the ADSL router (such as an Xbox) can. Do I have to invest in a wireless router - seems like a waste if I do? Any tips greatly appreciated.
What you are trying will not work, you do need a new wireless router for use on cable only, I have always found this to be reliable and if price is of concern, well then it is not expensive. click here
