I have a Motorola Surfboard modem, When I told my sister and dad I have one computer hooked to the cat5 and one to the USB in the back of the modem, they don't believe me because when they try it, it logs the other computer off. Is mine normal or theres.
they said they have to use the router to get both working. I have Charter, my sis and my dad have Adelphia.

Yes, I'd say that your ISP has something enabled in the modem that allows that to happen. Normally you're supposed to use one or the other, not both at the same time. I would just get a rotuer, its a good investment in the long run.

It's possible to use both.

Normally by default when a modem is bound to a cable account they are allowed 1 IP. Does their ISP allow an extra IP? Maybe it isn't enabled.

We don't recommend using the USB port on anything other than WinXP.
