I was told the same thing which I thought was odd. I am currently using two 
ports and not even plugged into port 1.

No, my two addresses are in the subnet.

Are you sure you are reading this correctly. The default network for the LAN 
side for the SMC router is so it is unlikely that Shaw would use the 
same network on the cable side.  They would not pick a private network that is 
so commonly used by routers.
