Switching my router + modem to a different house that has a 2 in 1

So I had Cox in my previous house, I used a router and modem rather than their 2 in 1 they can provide. I moved to a new house that already has internet through a 2 in 1 (netgear), would I be able to use my router and modem under this new internet? Sorry if I'm lacking in my terminology, I don't know much about networking, thank you!

I assume that a "2 in 1" is a combined modem/router.

 

The router is probably reusable. The modem depends on the internet service.

 

The ability to use any of this stuff in a new location depends on the sort of Internet you get.

 

A DSL modem will not work on a cable service, for example.

 

It might help if you said what the Netgear stuff you have is and the Internet technology you have.
