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

gracehadid123 is right about what he says, but I have another question. Why do you need to disconnect your router? It works incorrectly, perhaps? If so, there are many ways to deal with this problem.

Did you try to reset it by entering admin interface? Look here: https://www.router-reset.com/ip/10-0-0-1 - this is a tool which helps you to do it. There is plenty of information too. For example, a lot of default login details. I think this is better than throwing away a working device or provide strange experiments.
