I would have a look at the arp Table...
What kind of Cable Modem is in use (Samsung, Terayon, Motorola..?)

Some Modems *must* be disconnected from the CATV to be contacted.
The cable modem IP address is not in the same sub-net 
as the user's PC. So, when trying to send to, the user 
PC's IP stack will normally route the packet to the Default Gateway 
address at the UBR. Since no routes exist to the private address (and there are multiple instances of this IP address 
on any one CATV segment), the UBR drops the packet.

You Could add a static Route.

Your problem is interesting because I can access my Cable Modem IP
address of from inside the LAN on my M0n0wall. I currently
have the "Block private networks" rule turned on and it works fine. I
did nothing special to get this to work.

Are you using the correct address for your cable modem. Most of the
modems I have seen use not
