Can someone please help me ~...Ive got a Linksys WAG54G v2 ADSL modem router that I have been using for the past year or so with an ADSL service provider. I have now changed my service provider to Cable and was wondering if I can use the Linksys with this. If I can, what do I need to do?

There are just a few ADSL modem/routers that can accept an external ADSL modem via a USB port, but even fewer that can accept a Cable modem through an RJ45 port - the encapsulation has a big influence.

To my knowledge, the Linksys models are not capable of it (although your model number is not clear - do you mean the WAG54GS or the WAG354G?)

Prerequisites include the ability to switch any one RJ45 port to a modem port, the ability to disable/bypass the internal ADSL modem either manually or automatically and the ability to accept a PPPoE modem signal.
