Can I use a D-Link 624 router on my TWC cable internet installation to hande the addressing - only, no wireless broadcasting.

My previous setup was an Motorola modem/router (via DSL) to my network switch.

When the cable folks left today I had a modem, but nothing to handle the addressing.  Will using the D-Link 624 effect the Internet speed?

Are you looking for something to perform DHCP?

Yes, the client computers (other than one printer) don't have assigned "local" addresses.  Obviously, the Motorola modem from AT&T must have handled the address assignments as well as the DSL signal conversion.  I have no need for wireless (and the additional layer of security it entails.

Yes you can use the Dlink just reset to factory and DHCP will be set.  Also, you must power reset the TWC modem.  It locks on the previous MAC of whatever device was hooked up to it. A power reset will allow you to hook up a different router/switch.

If your print has a network port you will be able to config it for a new static IP.

Purchased a "router only"  DLink ERB 2310, it handles the DHCP function fine.
