DSL modem is for dsl, cable modem is for cable...
Unless you're switching to cable internet, there's no need for a cable modem. If you are switching, check with the cable provider for a list of compatible modems...

You should probably call your ISP, and see if there is an upgradeable DSL modem for you connection speed. Or if your modem really sucks, Grab a new DSL modem from the egg or else where.
