I've a Virgin Media cable connection in the UK.  They supply a combined
modem/router.    But the unit can be put into modem-only mode, and
used with a different router.  

So far as I remember the first of these combined things that I received
came with only very basic instructions that did not mention the way to
do this - it was Virgin's own technical support people who told me how
to do it.    Subsequent improved models have come with instructions 
that mentioned the possibility.
