    The easiest way would be if your service uses DHCP, which most cable companies use it as part of DOCSIS. I set up my cable service (from a local provider) in 5 minutes with my airport express. Basically, unplugged cable modem from power, put cable ethernet cable to port on airport express, then plugged it all in, used the airport utility to set it up and I was up and running in less than 5 minutes, seriously.
