    DEN broadaband is a cable internet service. You need a cable modem. An ADSL modem will not work with cable broadband. – DavidPostill Oct 26 '15 at 15:12

No, you can't.

Almost all routers (except very-very expensive, enterprise-level) have only one type of WAN connection. They may route between this WAN and LAN ports. You need to buy another one.

In theory, you may use your router as switch with WiFi, but you will need to set provider IP on your device. It is pain and number of devices are limited to 1, so it is not a way to go.
