Connecting More Than Two Computers to the Cable Modem

If you need to connect more than two computers or if you need to connect two computers but
USB is not available, you'll need the following additional equipment (if supported by your cable
operator):
Crossover-wired, or "null," category 5 Ethernet cable for the cable modem to be connected
to the hub
10BaseT or 100BaseT Hub or Switch
Straight through, or standard, category 5 Ethernet cable (one for each computer to be
connected)
If you have a hub with an uplink port*, a straight through cable can be used in combination
with that port in lieu of the crossover cable.
"Null" cable (not supplied)
*An uplink port has a small switch on it to change the polarity of the connection. It can accept
either a crossover or a straight cable, depending on the setting.
