    If it were then there wouldn't be seperate router products for cable broadband and ADSL.

    DSL (with or without the initial A) is for copper wire, as used by BT. Virgin cable broadband (such as I have) is optical fibre to the home. My broadband comes through the same connection as would be used for the telly, if I got that from them. The phone comes through a separate connection. The two are unrelated (as evidenced by the fact that when the phone breaks due to physical damage at the point where it leaves the building, the net keeps working).
