    What's up guys

    Hey, I have a cable connection with time warner cable, and I needed a router to connect multiple pcs now that i have more than 1 computer at home.

    I managed to dig up an old DSL Modem/Router (Actiontec GT704-WG), it's an all in one device it has the modem and router in one device.

    So i was wondering, is it possible to connect the cable modem to the dsl router through some kind of special cable, or through the USB connection? Thanks.

    Let me know if you need more info regarding my setup, as i don't know what info you may need.

    No. You cannot use a modem/router as a router only.

    Please tell us the brand and model of your modem. Sometimes people have a modem/router w/o knowing it.
