I think you need a router of some sort. Generally speaking you would use a device to connect multiple computers to a modem. The main issue is that the ISP(your internet company) will provide only one address and will not provide any more addresses. That's why you need a router to connect your computers to a modem to provide more addresses.
am been trying to make a network so my laptop and my desktop computer can both have internet
now after a week of doing stuff and making it work
i found out the cable modem seems to have some sort of flaw
people have been trying to do what am trying to do
but the modem wont work with two computers for some reason
it will pick one computer and give it internet and the other wont have any internet
i tried a switch and a router and even puting the usb cable to one computer and the ethernet cable to the other(says this can be done on the website, but it wont work)
this cable modem is:sb5101
i am with Optus Australia
i heard theirs firmware updates for it, but if you update it , the optus server will detect it and put back the original firmware or it will make the modem into a brick.
is their a update or something i can do to fix this?
and does any one else have this problem?
maybe i can buy a new modem ?

Well how you generally connect a router into a network is like this.
dont know much about networking but
so most of it makes no sense to me
