I have a Netgear N 300 Wireless Router that is also a DSL Modem... I want to Go to a Cable Internet Provider. Can I plug the Cable Modem into the N 300 Router and continue to use it as a Wirless Router?

You should ask your Cable Internet Provider this question. There should not be a reason, but it could per your terms with said company, not be allowed. – Ramhound Feb 15 '13 at 16:33

It will depend on your provider and would best be a question for them. In most cases there is no problem doing this but the ISP may need to make changes to their modem. That is the case with the ISP I use in Canada
