Does it have to be connected to a cable modem?

Can this be used for file/print sharing only, without plugging it into my cable modem? My cable connection is in a different room than my home office ..so i really only need it to wirelessly share my hard drives and printer. So wondering if i can continue to use my Linksys as the wireless router, and the AirPort basically as an extension to my existing network.
