Yes you can use this without an internet connection.
If you don't need or have access to the internet you can still use it (or any router) to route all your networkable devices. For example, if you are streaming video or music from an older computer to your TV or speakers. Or if you have many computers/printers and don't need to access the internet.
BUT, you will need a DSL/Cable modem to connect to the router to access the internet though. This is not a modem AND a router, it is only a router.

it would be a waste of money to buy this if you don't have an internet connection in your house. you must connect this to your modem or it is worthless.
