Answers :

Your PC needs a Network Interface Card (NIC) as stated above. If you don't know what this is, you should consider a USB NIC. That is of course that you PC has been upgraded to USB 2.0, if not you will need to get a PCI plug in card and open you PC up to connect it.

\015\012As you now know, a connector between your high speed modem and your PC will not plug into your PC's modem. That's not how it works.
\015\012
\015\012Once you have a NIC card up and running just follow the instructions with with cable modem for connections.
You might need a new NIC card, thats high speed capable. What kind of hi speed are you trying to use ex.DSL,FiOS,Cable?
