German translation:Kabelverbindung
Explanation:
The first is the standard term.

But it is obviosu that this term could be used here in contrast to "wireless" connections. In this case I hve seen the term "Festleitung" used.

Hint: In case of a modem, don't use the term "Kabelmodem", because this is strictly limited to broadband adapters!
