So I chatted with my cable company in a chatroom. They told me if I wanted to switch internet from desktop to labtop vice versa, I needed to power cycle.

What is power cycle?

To power cycle that you would remove the power plug from the back of the modem. Wait about 30 seconds to a minute then plug it back in.

If you want multiple computers on the internet at the same time, you can purchase a home router that will allow you to do that.
