    Cable internet and ADSL are different technologies. You can't use one modem over other.

    I have seen Hathway internet cable modem. It has a bnc connecter to input the cable signal (like what is used by a set top box). It does not have a telephone RJ-11 port. It also does not work on adsl technology. There is no way it can be connected to a telephone data line. So, I also conclude that, conversely, an ADSL modem cannot be used with a cable internet provider. That is as far as I know. If someone knows otherwise, I don't know.
