If by modem you mean "router" you can attach the switch and it will allow your other devices to use the internet. The ISP will likely only allow you to have a single IP address. This is a generic limitation not related to the type of switch.

Although this switch will work it is more than 10yrs old. The best place for it is the dumpster. You are limited to 10m ports.

If the "Modem" isn't actually a rouer / All in one . Then you are going to need to get a linksys or another cisco router put between your switch and your modem.
