I have a cable modem and an Airport Express. I have the cable modem plugged into the uplink of an Ethernet hub; the Airport Express and the iMac then both plug into the hub.
Sorry, but this won't work. If you need to support both wired and wireless devices on your network, you will need to use a wireless router with a built-in Ethernet switch so the modem doesn't get "confused" on what's connected to it. An example of this type of router would be the AirPort Extreme Base Station if you're sticking with Apple products. If not, there are plenty of vendors out there, like Belkin, D-Link, Linksys and Netgear just to name a few.
