This depends a lot on the type of modem, and whether you connect to it directly, or if the fam is splitting the connection all throughout the house with one of the router-in-a-box deali-whos that made Linksys a household name.

If you don't have a dummy-router like that, what's the modem connection? USB or ethernet?
