Default 2 cable modems on one line?

Hi I recently hooked my playstation 2 downstairs through my cable modem just by simply unpluging the ethernet cord from my computer and putting it in the back of my ps2 and I was wondering is if its possible to get another cable modem just for my playstation 2 and so that way I can run the computer and the playstation 2 on the internet at the same time.

I don't believe that is possible unless you get a router.

Huh?

You want a router. You take the cord that is going from the modem, and instead of taking it into the PC or PS2, you plug that into the router, then the router has usually 4 ports, from which you go from there to your PS2 and PC

Well it's not possible without a router buddy, i'm sorry. Mark's diagram is exactly what you would need to do to make it work.

I've never seen a modem with extra ports at least not a cable one.

Get a Cable modem with router installed?! I have an ADSL modem/router and it can supply five computers so surely you can get them for cable?

That's what a router does. It divides the line

sure it's possible to get another cable modem, but you'd be paying for it through your cable company. get a router
