New modem for Telephone also good for internet?

Good afternoon. Since the new digital service runs on a docsis 3 modem, I was wondering if I can connect my wireless router to that modem, too? Or do I have to keep it connected to the 'old' docsis 2 modem, that I have had for a while, now?

Thank you very much in advance,

    Hi Zapote,

    Your Cox telephone modem can be activated for internet service and you can connect your wireless router to the telephone modem.  Please send us an email at with your full name, street address, and a link to this post so that we can verify your equipment.  Thanks.
