Upgrade from your basic cable modem to a full NETGEAR 802.11g wireless gateway with the CG814GCMR!
This router is a combination of a DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem, wireless access point, firewall router, and 4-port switch. It even offers Plug and Play USB connectivity. You'll be able to enjoy all the functions of the World Wide Web including high speed Internet access, file sharing, video streaming, online gaming, and more.
Filtering and Firewall
This gateway features an extensive suite of filtering and firewall capabilities, to restrict URL's and otherwise protect your system from unwanted sites or intruders.
Provides immediate high-speed wireless access and flexibility. An integrated external antenna eliminates the need for a PC card, and the built-in 802.11g wireless access point extends the network to support to 54 Mbps throughput without requiring any new cabling.
Secure and Private
A super strong double firewall (NAT + SPI) secures your network and protects against malicious attacks.
Network Address translation (NAT) shields your networked devices from intruders, and Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Denial of Service (DoS) attack prevention averts potential threats by scanning incoming traffic.
In addition, you can set up WEP and other types of encryption to ensure that your access point is restricted and kept safe. MAC Address Control prevents unauthorized access to your wireless network, and VPN pass-through ensures secure Internet access for your office corporate network. URL content filtering and time-of-day usage limits give parents and administrators ultimate control over user access. E-mailed reports of browsing activities and optional real-time e-mail alerts provide further input on user activity.
Simple for anyone, even those without networking experience, to set up and use. A USB port provides simple Plug-and-Play connectivity. Lighted status icons make it easy to monitor network activity.

I'm sorry, I don't have an answer to that question and when attempting to hit add comment it just brings me back to make a reply, so my apologies for tagging my question on top of yours.
I'm very interested in making my home wireless and home entertainment friendly and have the modem that if featured in this article. With all of the new wireless technology, for instance N, would it be possible for me to use this modem as the conduit for my cable Internet service while connecting it to an N wireless router?
For some reason I keep going back to the idea that this would simply be redundant and at best a bottleneck, but I just thought I'd ask with the hope that an expert in wireless technology might show me to the light.
