Nope.

You can't use a cable modem with FIOS. Not compatible.

You get a wireless router included with FIOS. I don't know why you would want to use a cable modem.

I'm not knowledgeable about Fios and trying to learn as much as I can. Can you purchase your own equipment without getting the Actiontec? I'm now a comcast customer and have a NETgear Wndr3700 router. Thanks in advance.

Maybe or maybe not. For more info, I point you to »Verizon Online FiOS FAQ »Do I have to use the supplied router with Verizon FiOS?

tippy, you might want to post in our FiOS forum with your FiOS questions. They are very knowledgeable and helpful in there.
