easiest way to do it is get a router/switch and connect the modem to the router/switch then connect each of the computers to the router/switch

With cable each comp has to have its own IP. With they will give you for a SMALL fee. But the router gets around that and gives you some what of a firewall also.

This is the way I have the roadrunner set up at my home.

Simple setup with the cable line to the Toshiba modem, then out to the Linksys BEFSR41 router, then to the two PC's and iMac.

Going wireless costs a little more, but the costs on those setups have come down considerably recently.

You can share Cable if you want, without purchasing additional IP's from your ISP.

What's your operating system?

In Windows '98 SE and Millenium, I always had trouble with the Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing wizard (i think that's what they called it). The thing would work great, then not work great. I'd check all the settings find no problems, remove and reinstall it, and then it'd work great again. Basically pretty buggy IMHO. If you are running these versions of Windows, I would suggest that you go ahead and get a hardware router/firewall.

If you are running XP, I've had NO problems with the NAT server (Internet Connection Sharing) in it. If you have it turned on, then generally other computers running XP will automatically recognize how to connect to the internet and do it. If they do not have XP, or if they do but it is not working on its own, manually set their TCP/IP configuration to the following:

IP (static): 192.168.0.2
Default Gateway: Your computer's IP
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

That should do it, and no need to spend any money.

'99 Camaro SS: Heads/cam/bolt-ons. Sold.
'91 Camaro RS: Stock.

2010 Camaro SS: Hell yes.

Connect the cable modem ethernet cable to the uplink port on the hub and then both of you connect to the hub. I used to pull endless IP's on comcast. I had 6 pc's at one time all with there own IP.
