      i do not think you can, cable uses a different modem/router to telephone broadband
      (if you go into somewhere like currys, you will see two types marked for cable or telephone)

      If youve already got the cable modem then you can connect a wireless router to it to use the virgin service via wireless. A friend of mine down the road has done this so she can connect her wii. I dont think you would still be able to use it for sky at the same time tho.
