Switched from DSL to cable...can I still use my DSL router for wireless?

Due to a problem with DSL service in my area I made the switch to a cable modem yesterday.  Only after I hooked it up did I realize, sickeningly, that it did not provide the same wifi service that the DSL box does. I have a desktop PC but I also am accustomed to connecting wireless with a couple of laptops I have.

  My question: can I somehow still use my DSL box as a wireless router?  For DSL I have a 2Wire brand and the new cable modem is a Thomson/RCA DCM 425.  Pictures below.  If this is possible, please explain how I would connect in the 2Wire.  Would I connect the cable modem to my desktop via USB and then the cable modem to the 2Wire via ethernet???... confused
