Do I need router when I care only on Cable?

Hi as the topic is, will my connection go more stable, or without some distortion or would it be more reliable due to more RAM and better processor in router when I use cable connection? Or is it that in that case it would be barely noticable and it doesn't matter that i have modem router combo when i care about cable? Does somebody know the truth about this topic?

If you have a modern router then there should be no worries about connecting an Ethernet cable 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The only downsides to using a cable company supplied combo unit are,

 

The settings may not be as configurable as some might like...guest network, bandwidth priority for streaming, whatever.

The single wireless access point may, or may not, give you adequate coverage of your living space, causing wireless dead/slow spots.

 

If you don't have problems, or need those features, you should be fine.
