Default Depending on the cable modem....

some can be connected to the computer via USB. If thats the case with your particular modem, you could use that connection method to connect up your new PC and then use the Xover cable to connect the other PC through internet connection sharing. I would recommend if you have the extra $30 to just buy a router, although windows can do some routing for you, it's not meant to be a router.
