cable vs dsl modem????
heya, I just got dsl service in my apartmen so I could upgrade from fedora core 3 to 4. I was going to go out and buy a dsl modem instead of rent one from quest. I called up a couple of computer stores to run price matches and came across and interesting phenomenon. a couple of the techs there said that a dsl modem and a cable modem are the exact same thing. aka interchangeable. I was under the impression that each service had their own type of modem. Cable had one that used a Cat5 uplink and dls used the basic phone cord uplink. are they correct. can I buy a modem that says cable modem on it and be able to use it for my dsl ??????
