How is it possible to limit Internet connection using a cable modem? Modem are non IP-aware DCEs. Number of simultaneous connections should solely depend on your router capabilities. Any decent router should easily support at least 100+ connections simultaneously.
In case you do need to have 8 users per modem/internet connection you will be required to assign unique internal addresses to each internet router and users and have users' default-gateway set to that particular router. You can get a big LAN by uplinking all the hubs together. In short, it is possible, but I dont get the reason for doing it this way.
