I don't think you'll get any list of *home* cable modems, which excludes small 
business connections as well.

Also, with a lot of ISPs, I don't think you'll get a list of *cable* modems, 
separate from DSL modems; many of them use combined DHCP pools for both.

However, depending on what your reason for needing such a list is, you might 
find that a sufficiently effective solution is to do a reverse DNS lookup on an IP 
address and look for any of:


as discrete words (often in a format such as "cable-79-35-42-183.isp.com").

Hope that helps,
