    Just moved in and brought my ADSL wifi modem Belkin F1PI241EGau with me, but over here there is cable and the provider supplied me with their modem motorola Surfboard SB5101E. I would like to connect these two to use the wifi. Would that be possible?

    Thank you

    Not really. The ADSL router doesn't have the correct WAN interface. You need a standard router with an Ethernet WAN connection.

    Any recommendations for good wifi router which would be most compatible with the cable modem?

    Any major brand of standard router will do the job. Since you're in Eastern Europe, I'm guessing you'll have to find out what's available in your area.
