You need to get a router to sit between you and that cable modem. It is
possible the modem is also a router but the only way to check is for you to
check the IP address. if it starts with 192.168.x.x, then you are behind a
router with little to worry about. Just change the default password on the
router to something with number, CAPS, and specials.
