No a modem is not a cable, a cable connects to a modem.

Coxial cable is used from the wall to the modem. From the modem to the computer an RJ-45, or ethernet, cable is used.

The two technologies are not interchangable, and the hardware used to connect (DSL modem or Cable modem) are not likely to work with the other.

If you're talking about a Cable Modem, which I guess you are since Modems are not really used anymore. A cable modem is...really important. A cable modem is the door for the internet signal. The signal goes from your ISP, to the Cable modem and then to your computer, it gets the IP's from your ISP, it determines the speed you should have and it converts the signal from the Coaxial cable to something called Internet.

To access the internet via broadband cable, you will need a cable modem. Bandwidth is used for transmitting the signals of the internet to and from your home, and the cable modem is in place to allow the signals to be sent and received.

No, a cable modem connects to a cat5 coax cable and a DSL modem connects to a standard phone line.

No, just connect the cable to the cable modem and then connect the modem to the computer.

Actually, a coaxial cable is used for both modems and TV's.

You will need to buy a new modem that is designed for your DSL modem. This is due to the fact that the modem is designed to use the dsl signal opposed to the cable modem.

In general, a cable modem will offer better and more reliable bandwidth and a wireless modem.

The earliest known cable modem was introduced in 1979. This was known as a cable RF Modem. However, cable modems as we know them today, were not introduced until the 1990s.

A cable modem is a type of modem that provides bi-directional data communication via radio frequency channels on a cable television (CATV) infrastructure. Cable modems are primarily used to deliver broadband Internet access in the form of cable Internet, taking advantage of the high bandwidth of a cable television network

No. Your computer would connect directly to the cable modem via an ethernet cable.

Televisions and cable modems use a coaxial cable. RG59 or RG6.

DSL and cable modem utilize the same technology only difference in the companies.

There is a big difference between a cable modem and a DSL modem. There are many types of both available and these options can be viewed on Amazon. A cable modem uses a coxial cable input to connect it. However, a DSL modem uses a phone cord in order to function.

Your question presupposes that you have subscribed to cable internet service, and that the provider has run a cable to your home. It also presupposes that you have a cable modem. If these suppositions are correct, you just have to run coax between the cable jack on the wall and the cable modem. Then you need to connect the modem to your computer via USB, FireWire, or whatever interface your modem and computer have in common. FriPilot

No. The cable provider has to authorize the other modem on the network before it can be used, and they will not do that, since they want you to pay for another cable installation.

If you want to have internet on that laptop you need to be connected to internet provider which usually happens directly (connected to the modem) or indirectly (connected to the modem through wired or wireless router).

You'll probably need to plug the cable modem to the cable line. Then plug an ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router. Then connect each of your computers (via ethernet cable) to the router.
