Unfortunately, if you bought a combined "Router & ADSL Modem" this is the wrong type for use with "Cable" broadband - it is only suitable for ADSL delivered via the phone line.

You need a "stand-alone" wireless router, often described as a "Wireless Cable/DSL Router" (don't confuse the reference to DSL with models which incorporate an ADSL Modem).

Sorry mate, you have the wrong type of router, how old is it where did you get it?
