Yes and no.

if you use a hub all computers on your lan will be exposed to the internet each computer will have a public address assigned by your modem. depending on your ISP they normally on provide you with so many ip address. so you will have to check with you ISP to see if they are providing you with enough IP address for all your computer on the lan.
