Rhys, from what I'm seeing, I think that you're out of luck.

What I'm seeing is that it's a DSL modem with built-in 4 port switch. It's probably possible to change, but definitely would not be economical, because you would have to change the interface type (phone jack to a cable jack), and I believe that it's two different technologies used to transfer the data (DOCSIS for cable, don't know for DSL).
