as far as i understand cable modem setups (which is not very far due to the
fact that its virtually impossible to get cable internet in germany), all you
need to do is buy a second small hub, and some cheapass old box off ebay,
with two network cards. then, connect one of those two to the hub which is
either built into or connected to the cable modem, and the other one to a hub
which is your home network with all other pcs.
then, run susefirewall2 on the cheap box, and a dhcp server on the interface
connected to your home lan.
hope those pointers are enough to get you going in the right direction.
