Cable Internet with a 2600 Router

I have a client that has an existing Cisco 2610 with the standard WIC-1DSU TI WAN card. However, they want to switch to cable internet. Is this possible with this module? I cannot find any information on the Cisco website. Is there a module for the 2600 series that can take in the cable signal before the modem? Is there a module that would take it after the cable modem? Would the current T1 DSU/CSU card work? Is there any way to do this without buying the Cisco cable modem?

Thanks for any help.


Re: Cable Internet with a 2600 Router

Cisco doesn't make modules that accept a cable signal to my knowledge -- someone can correct me if necessary. Cable modems convert the cable signal to Ethernet, so an Ethernet interface on the router could be used at that point. The T1 card won't do you any good in this case, though.
