Is this cable modem connecting to an ethernet card in your computer or thru a USB connection. Details always help with better replies so we don't have to ask you questions to find your answer..

You need a router or setup connection sharing from the other PC then.. Cable/DSL routers are very inexpensive these days. And in order to get a cable modem working in Linux using a NIC, get the NIC working and there's a 99.99999999999999999999999999% its going to give you no problems.
