A quick look at the manual online tells me, "Not likely"

That unit has a coaxial connector for cable highspeed. It doesn't have an RJ-45 (ethernet) WAN port connection which you'd need for ADSL.

Your ISP should have provided you with a modem....possibly a combination modem/router/AP unit. If not, contact them.

If all you get from them is a modem, spend the $50 and buy a good SOHO Router. Get one that's wireless capable if you want a wireless LAN at home............just don't forget to secure it!

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
