You may be able to explain to the engineer that you would rather use your existing router, and they might plug the modem into that for you, rather than setting up a wireless router you don't need.They might not, but it can't hurt to ask!
Ah, "It's going to be switched to cable"If its being switched to cable you will still keep you're land line number but you will have use their cable router and lines as your old one will be incompatible, a new socket should be provided for the cable network as well. I think the cable socket goes in place of the BT one as it normally has a cable connection integrated into it. Cable modems work differently to BT line modems and have different connections. Normal BT lines go through a filter to a router and then go from the router to the pc via wireless, Eternet or rj45 connectors. Cable lines go to a cable router and then to the pc via wireless USB or Ethernet.Don't worry though as that is what the engineer is for.
