Can I connect to the internet without using a cable modem but with just using a wireless router. Forgive me but I am computer illiterate...I just bought a wireless router and thinking that I didn't have to use the modem.Ijust so happen to see that the co-ax fitting is not supplied on the modem.
If I can't do that, then am I at the mercy of the cable modem and how slow it can be, how it can kick off-line etc.
Thanks in advance,

What is your question?

Yes, wireless routers only split the connection so that you can have more than one computer on a single internet connection and the wireless only provides wireless signal to this connection and only reaches about 1000 feet depending on the router. They are made to provide wireless within your home no further.

Only Internet Service Providers can give you internet in your home. Some countries (Not USA, thanks FCC) provide WiMAX which is like a cell phone but it works on the 2.4 GHz of a wireless router. If you live in one of these countries see if they have WiMAX and see if it will work with your router other wise you can use Cable Internet, DSL Internet (Phone Line), MyFi (Cell Phone) or Satellite (Dish Receiver) Internet and plug the router into the modem they provide.
