If you are running a Cable from next door, buy yourself a Router, this goe on the cable and your PC/Laptop are connected to the Router:

Internet

Uncles Modem

Decide which it is as they are two completely different pieces of equipment. You can have as many switches as you want, but only one Modem. You need a router though to share an Internet connection and these usually come with a four port switch built in.
