Can i use adsl modem router as cable router?

I am switching to a cable broadband service from adsl and I currently have a combined adsl wireless modem/router (belkin) . Rather than buy a new wireless router to use with the supplied cable modem do you think I can still use my existing adsl modem/router as a standalone wireless router, discarding the adsl modem part?
What do you all think?
Anyone done this?

No you can't because it doesn't have an RJ45 ethernet WAN port to connect to the Cable Modem - it can only be connected to an ADSL-enabled phone line.
