Hello Josh:

The cable modem's R.F. side will only work in the spectrum that cable service providers use; up to approx 800 MHz. WiFi operates in the GHz region.

Also, the modem's protocol is probably only DOCSYS 1.1 compliant if it's very old. But possibly DOCSYS 2.0 if it's not too old.

However. someone may be interested, if it's compatible, as a rent free alternative to their leased cable modem.

Best wishes.
