This question can be understood with more than one meaning.

One meaning is that of a user that desires to connect an access point to retransmit internet from their cable modem to extend the bandwidth provided by their Cable ISP wireless to one or more users. For this, one must first check the acceptable use policy of the company which is providing the cable router. The hookup is quite straightforward. Setup the cable modem to deliver a static IP to the wireless router. Let the wireless router reassign IPs to the end users. If servers are to be parked behind the wireless router, then more engineering is required, which will not be covered here in this response. (Please ask another question regarding configuring servers behind cable modems.)

There are wireless router / gateway devices that you can hool up to a cable modem to provide auto failoever and auto failback during cable internet outages. One such device is the Nexus Hawk www.nexushawk.com. This wireless router device is inserted between the cable modem and the user network. The wireless router then provides internet access during intermitent outages. There are a few such products advertising this feature, but to date I have only seen the Nexus Hawk in use. I invite others to write of other products they have seen working in the field. This question can be understood with more than one meaning.

Not really an answer to your query. But why do you need to hook your wireless modem into your wireless cable modem?
