most modems only have one ethernet port and that is used to connect the router. I think you could plug the base into that port but you should connect to a router.

It needs an etherent port... if you modem only has one, then why not a switch ( they are cheap as low as $15 , even at walmart ).

As to direct connect, it should work.
