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.

Can you hook up to the internet with a stand alone computer?

Yes you can. If you have a DSL or Cable broadband internet you just need to hook the modem's ethernet cable to the computer and your set to go. (of course after you configure everything) If you don't have a ethernet port and just a wireless laptop then you will need either a wireless modem or a wireless Router. The Modem just hooks to the router then the router connects to all your networkable devices. I would vote for the wireless router as once you get a smartphone, iPad, WiFi Blueray player, WiFi HDTV, X-Box, etc, you will already be set up to hook them all up. Most wireless Routers usually have 4 ethernet ports as part of it also.

Can a modem either DSL Cable style also be a router and why?

a modem takes cable input and output goes to only 1 Ethernet cable. A router takes the 1 Ethernet cable and makes it so that you can hook up four or five Ethernet cables. a wireless router allows you to hook up 4 or 5 Ethernet cables and unlimited amounts of wireless receivers. If you only have 1 computer, you don't need a router. You only need 1 Ethernet cable. To put it in simple terms : Yes, many newer external modems have full router and firewall functionality built-in to a single device
