I've never heard of Linksys selling cable modems. When I was with Telewest
I used the supplied cable modem. It provided an ethernet uplink, which
allowed me to plug in a Linksys WRT-54G broadband router.

If the NTL modem is half decent, it should provide both a USB and ethernet
uplink. If so, you can plug a broadband router into it, which will allow
multiple computers to connect at once.
