The isp uses dhcp to the modems. The modem acts as a bridge to the internet. Al a modem does is translate the signal from your source, dial-up, dsl, t1, cable, etc., From there it passes the signal to your pc or outer. AS LONG AS YOU HAVE DHCP ENABLED ON EITHER DEVICE(router or pc) YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET INTERNET IF PLUGGED INTO A CONSUMER MODEM!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I though it was still all caps day for a few minutes there.

I can plug my cable modem straight into my PC and it works fine. I only use a router for the hardware firewall. So it is certainly 100% true you do not need a router. A Guy
