Going From DSL Internet to Cable

I'm switching from DSL internet to cable. How does this affect my SWM hook- up ? I noticed ethernet cables going into my receiver.

It shouldn't affect your DirecTV equipment at all.  Just don't let your internet provider use the same coax cables as your satellite equipment.  And be sure your internet installer connects the main Receiver's (Genie?) ethernet port to your new modem/router.
