I have a cable modem for internet, with a separate wireless router. I am going to disable our wifi. Can I plug an ethernet cable into EITHER the cable modem or the router? Or can I only do it through the router? Thanks!

One can connect the ethernet to the modem and another to the Router or PC in order to access the internet. As
If the modem is the cable type of model then it would have only one COAX connection and few LAN ports.
If this is the type of situation you are having then you don't require the router and same goes for the ADSL modem too.
Or if you want the router and modem both then you are required to put the router in the bridge and then trough settings try using it as a LAN
