I don't understand exactly what you mean by "route together". I would
guess you need masquerading in the router so you can access the internet
from the Gamecube (but it seems you are describing something else).
As Matt sugested you can also configure your router as a bridge. That
gets you the same result as if you connected the Gamecube, the router
and the cable modem to the same hub (which would leave one nic in router
unused and it would no longer be a router). With this setup you might
not be able to access the internet with the Gamecube since it doesn't
have a valid IP-address for internet access. OR the Gamecube will
allocate a valid IP-address (in the same way as the router does), but
your internet provider might not allow this.
(Or is it the cable modem that hands out the IP-addresses and also acts
as a masquerade router?)
